Goodreads:  A man recalls his life of addiction, abandoment, and anger as he faces death at the age of thirty-four.  Told through the voice of one man, but written through the words of his brother - this memoir novelette describes the troubled life who was rejected by one woman at an early age but found solace in another.



Kritters Thoughts:  A great little novelette that took the reader deep into a family's heartache as they watch a son and father die at the young age of 34.  From page 1 to the end, the reader becomes a family member and aches for this family as they fall apart piece by piece.

Written by the step-brother of the main character, I am not sure that I would completely put this in the genre of memoir, but I would say this dramatic novelette is worth picking up.  It is emotional, but filled with truth - I definitely liked this short and simple read.




Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row


Pages:  90
