Abused by an alcoholic, unemployed father, Doug Wallace and his seven siblings barely survived childhood--fleeing in the night from landlords, scrambling for food, and burning down the only home they ever owned to collect insurance money. In this raw testimony of a heart-breaking, hardscrabble childhood, Doug Wallace paints an unforgettable portrait of a child determined to free himself from the cycle of poverty that strangled his family for generations. With a genuine voice and a keen eye on the class divide in America, the author unflinchingly reveals the painful experiences of class prejudice and life on the fringes of society. Separated from the haves by his poverty and from the have-nots by his desire for more, Wallace learns to use every person, every situation, and every encounter to realise his dream and serve his community.
