It seems I liked this more than most readers. Perhaps because I am the same age and economic background as the writer. Still, I thought is was a really good read and showed a slice of American life not usually written about today. Somewhat reminded me of an adult version of The Outsiders.

This is the most compelling memoir I've read in decades. Not only does it entertain (un-put-downable) but it imparts one lesson after another on dealing with life's issues in the best and worst of times! This is a memoir of survival. It's beautifully and honestly written and it will no doubt be read as a classic by generations to come. Thank you Mr. Dubus.

My husband and I both read this book and really enjoyed it! I grew up in a town close to Haverhill and I came to town with my High School for sporting events. I remember all of downtown being either boarded up or having bars and a rough crowd. It was a scary place in those days and I was forbidden by my parents to go downtown. We live even closer to Haverhill now and are enjoying all the benefits of the restoration. The restaurants are wonderful and the entire downtown area has new shops and and lots of places to explore. I just watched Chronicle on Channel Five and they highlighted "Townie," Andre Dubus III and the "new" Haverhill! This book is a true depiction of life in Haverhill if you lived on the wrong side of the Merrimack River in those days. Congratulations to Andre Dubus III for a wonderful read, I couldn't put it down! Hopefully, the book becomes a movie soon!

Andre Dubus III has brought to life a painful place and time with such insight and forgiveness.As he spans his life and gains distance from adolescence his ability to forgive his father, his tormentors and himself is compelling. The personal growth and insight he shares is a testament to his heart. This is a memoir to devour and savor.
