One of Spacek's six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
The Glass Castle by Jeannette WallsRead about another book on Spacek's list.
Walls survived a gypsy childhood, dragged from town to town by brilliant but unstable parents, including a mother who cared more about her art than her children. Yet Walls had the tenacity to finish school and pull her siblings out of poverty with her. The most unforgettable scene: when Walls, who becomes a New York society columnist, realizes that a homeless woman she sees rooting through an East Village Dumpster is her mother.
