Finally get to read it as it's the oldest TBR on my shelf and my bookclub will be discussing it this week.
Wow, what a family. The kids sleep in cardboard boxes and savage garbage cans for food, while the father either gets drunk or dreams of hitting gold, and the mother stays home and paints, both of them capable of being gainfully employed but neither bothers to. In some way it's terrible child abuse, but on the other hand there are some cool moments, like having a star for Christmas present - that kind of makes you wish for a dad like hers... And the children turns out more than okay, which makes you wonder, how come such lousy child-rearing brings up great adults when other good and caring parents turn out terrible adults? What is good parenting?
