Tara Westover tenia disset anys la primera vegada que va posar el peu a una aula. Vivia amb la seva família a la muntanya . La família vivia tan aïllada de la societat que no hi havia ningú que garantís que els nens rebessin una educació i que intervingués en el moment que el germà gran de Tara es va convertir en violent. Aleshores, els pares van decidir educar-la. Va ser admesa a la Brigham Young University, i ja no va parar més d'aprendre, arribant a estudiar a Harvard i a Cambridge. Educated és un relat de la lluita per l'autoinvenció. És un relat de lleialtat familiar ferotge i de la pena que es produeix amb la separació dels vincles més estrets. Amb la visió aguda que distingeix a tots els grans escriptors, Westover ha elaborat una història universal que arriba al cor.

Selected as a book of the year by AMAZON, THE TIMES, SUNDAY TIMES, GUARDIAN, NEW YORK TIMES, ECONOMIST, NEW STATESMAN, VOGUE, IRISH TIMES, IRISH EXAMINER and RED MAGAZINE

________________________

Tara Westover and her family grew up preparing for the End of Days but, according to the government, she didn't exist. She hadn't been registered for a birth certificate. She had no school records because she'd never set foot in a classroom, and no medical records because her father didn't believe in hospitals.

As she grew older, her father became more radical and her brother more violent. At sixteen, Tara knew she had to leave home. In doing so she discovered both the transformative power of education, and the price she had to pay for it.
