Book Synopsis

This unforgettable memoir, by one of our most gifted writers, introduces us to the young Toby Wolff, by turns tough and vulnerable, crafty and bumbling, and ultimately winning. Separated by divorce from his father and brother, Toby and his mother are constantly on the move, yet they develop an extraordinarily close, almost telepathic relationship. As Toby fights for identity and self-respect against the unrelenting hostility of a new stepfather, his experiences are at once poignant and comical, and Wolff does a masterful job of re-creating the frustrations and cruelties of adolescence. His various schemes - running away to Alaska, forging checks, and stealing cars - lead eventually to an act of outrageous self-invention that releases him into a new world of possibility.

  • Good Memoir

    By Emmet Aloysius
    Good story though sad and discouraging at times. Well written and an easy read. Worth a look....EAF
  • Good but not noteworthy

    By Waste of money, scam!!!!
    I had to read this book for my English class summer reading. It's a good memoir, easy to understand, and not boring (which is rare for required reading). However, it didn't really leave me wanting more and it seemed a little more like a diary than a piece of literature.
  • Great Memoir

    By NWesternBostonpride
    Fantastic memoir that focuses on the young Wolff. Reading about how much he had to overcome and with so few people in his corner is amazing. To be honest, I read this because of the movie, but the book was far more enjoyable!
