Fiction. Romance. HTML:In this New York Times bestselling extraordinary coming-of-age odyssey, Wally Lamb invites us to hitch a wild ride on a journey of love, pain, and renewal with the most heartbreakingly comical heroine to come along in years.
"Mine is a story of craving: an unreliable account of lusts and troubles that began, somehow, in 1956 on the day our free television was delivered...."

Meet Dolores Price. She's thirteen, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood goodbye. Beached like a whale in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with the Mallomars, potato chips, and Pepsi her anxious mother supplies. When she finally rolls into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. But this time she's determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before really going belly up.

In this extraordinary coming-of-age odyssey, Wally Lamb invites us to hitch a wild ride on a journey of love, pain, and renewal with the most heartbreakingly comical heroine to come along in years. At once a fragile girl and a hard-edged cynic, so tough to love yet so inimitably lovable, Dolores is as poignantly real as our own imperfections. She's Come Undone includes a promise: you will never forget Dolores Price.

The beginning was fine, but the second half or so got rough...I even had to skip a few pages because I couldn't handle reading the scene.
It's really depressing, how everything gets worse and worse for this protagonist.
It's not easy reading, not lighthearted by any means. ( )

Picked this up, randomly, in a trade. Genuinely one of the worst things I've ever read. Bad to the point of offensiveness, in addition to being actually offensive. ( )

didn't finish it. Protagonist was loathsome. ( )

I read this book a few years ago and again in 2007 with a book group. Once more I had to check the author's name just to be sure it was written by a man. This guy gets how women think and has done research well. A troubling tale told with gripping sensitivity. ( )

The ultimate girly book that has really stayed with me over the years. I loved her voice --- and still so amazed that this was written by a man. ( )

Our day will come
If we just wait awhile . . .


—Ruby and the Romantics
Toward dawn we shared with you
your hour of desolation,
the hugh lingering passion
of your unearthly outcry,
as you swung your blind head
toward us and laboriously opened
a bloodshot, glistening eye,
in which we swam with terror and recognition.

—From "The Wellfeet Whale"

In one of my earliest memories, my mother and I are on the front porch of our rented Carter Avenue house watching two delivery men carry our brand-new television set up the steps. I'm excited because I've heard about but never seen television. The men are wearing work clothes the same color as the box they're hefting between them. Like the crabs at Fisherman's Cove, they ascend the cement stairs sideways. Here's the undependable part: my visual memory stubbornly insists that these men are President Eisenhower and Vice President Nixon.
