This book of fiction reads like a memoir. From what little research I did on it, the book is about the authors years of struggling growing up in an environment that he didn't fit into, that didn't accept him and that he himself tried to revolt against. It must be a common story sadly, the extreme poverty didn't help. One of the hardest books I have read since A Little Life, not an enjoyable read.
