Kaylie Jones at Thurber House
Listen to the Story
Author of several novels, including the acclaimed semi-autobiography, “A Soldierâ€™s Daughter Never Cries,” Kaylie Jones reads from her newest book, “Lies My Mother Never Told Me.” It is a gripping memoir about growing up as the daughter of literary royalty, James Jones, acclaimed author of such classic bestsellers as “From Here to Eternity” and “The Thin Red Line.”
The memoir reveals the painful truth not only of growing up with such literary luminaries as Norman Mailer and Thornton Wilder as family friends, but of a mother-daughter relationship torn apart because of alcoholism. Jones and her family live in New York City.
