Read from November 03 to 08, 2011

This must have been a painful memoir to write. Andre Dubus had a brutal childhood moving from one dismal rented house to another, left alone with his three siblings while his mother tried to earn a living. His mistreatment at the hands of bullies generated a rage so fierce that it took many years to dissipate. And the father who abandoned his family was eventually taken back into his children's lives.
