A Memoir, Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others. The New York Times Book Review Westover is a keen and honest guide to the difficulties of filial love, and to the enchantment of embracing a life of the mind. The New Yorker An amazing story, and truly inspiring. Its even better than youve heard. Bill Gates Heart-wrenching . . . a beautiful testament to the power of education to open eyes and change lives. Amy Chua, The New York Times Book Review A coming-of-age memoir reminiscent of The Glass Castle. O: The Oprah Magazine Westovers one-of-a-kind memoir is about the shaping of a mind. . . . In briskly paced prose, she evokes a childhood that completely defined her. Yet it was also, she gradually sensed, deforming her. The Atlantic Tara Westover is living proof that some people are flat-out, boots-always-laced-up indomitable. Her new book, Educated, is a heartbreaking, heartwarming, best-in-years memoir about striding beyond the limitations of birth and environment into a better life. . . . out of four. USA Today [ Educated] left me speechless with wonder. [Westovers] lyrical prose is mesmerizing, as is her personal story, growing up in a family in which girls were supposed to aspire only to become wivesand in which coveting an education was considered sinful. Her journey will surprise and inspire men and women alike. Refinery29 Riveting . . . Westover brings readers deep into this world, a milieu usually hidden from outsiders. . . . Her story is remarkable, as each extreme anecdote described in tidy prose attests. The Economist A subtle, nuanced study of how dysfunction of any kind can be normalized even within the most conventional family structure, and of the damage such containment can do. Financial Times Whether narrating scenes of fury and violence or evoking rural landscapes or tortured self-analysis, Westover writes with uncommon intelligence and grace. . . . One of the most improbable and fascinating journeys Ive read in recent years. Newsday, gebundene Ausgabe, 20.02.2018

New York Public Library An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara´s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she´d traveled too far, if there was still a way home. ´´Beautiful and propulsive . . . Despite the singularity of [Tara Westover´s] childhood, the questions her book poses are universal: How much of ourselves should we give to those we love? And how much must we betray them to grow up?´´-Vogue ´´Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others.´´-The New York Times Book Review Versandfertig in 2-4 Wochen Lieferzeit 1-2 Werktage
