Everyone is reading and talking about Educated – – the coming of age memoir by Tara Westover, raised by survivalist parents in the isolated mountains of Idaho, working the junk yard with her father and stewing herbs with her midwife/healer mother.  Not until she was 17 years old, after teaching herself mathematics and grammar on her own, did she tear herself from the violent confines of her father and brother, and onto higher education, first to Brigham Young University, then to Harvard and then to Oxford learning along the way the dangerous dysfunctions of her family and her urgent need for self-invention.
