Summary
In this memoir for general readers, author Sullivan and his five brothers support each other through their father's rapid descent from a respected surgeon at the Mayo Clinic to an abusive alcoholic on Skid Row. The boys find love and laughter in spite of their circumstances, mainly because of their mother's efforts, and find strength through their identification with rock music and popular culture. Written with a sense of dark humor, the book includes many excerpts from the mother's letters as well as diary entries written by the sons, plus b&w family photos from personal collections. Sullivan is now chair of the Advertising Department at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
