Reviews
"Wise and healing."--Publishers Weekly
"Martin has written a memoir to read slowly and savor. . . . Over the course of the memoir, Martin shows how he and his father learn to overcome their shame and control their rage. The honest and straightforward description of their relationship and their obvious affection for each other completely involve the reader. Highly recommended."--Library Journal
"A lyrical, finely wrought memoir of grief, pain, and joy."--Chicago Tribune
"Martin's memoir evokes the secrecy of family violence and the isolation of growing up in a rural community. . . . This is a touching and honest portrayal of family life, violence, disappointment, and coming of age."--Booklist
