The Glass Castle Part IV, Chapter 9

By Jeannette Walls

Part IV, Chapter 9

  • Mom visits Jeannette's new Park Avenue apartment and says that Jeannette has "sold out" (4.9.7).
  • Mom is also disappointed in Jeannette's new job: writing a society gossip column.
  • Because Jeannette is always rubbing elbows with the hoity-toity folk of high society, she never tells the truth about her parents. She always lies.
