Read from January 28 to February 06, 2010

I enjoyed every word of this bittersweet memoir. Plagued by a brutal, alcoholic father, and a childhood lived in humiliating povery, Queenan, the survivor, kept his spirit alive. If you are from Philadelphia, this book will bring back a lot of memories both good and bad. I learned that working class Olney was a hotbed of Nazi sympathy and many other salient facts.
