A Man Named Dave

This book is the final in the trilogy that began with A Child Called "It", a distressing book about a small boy who was tortured and abused for years by his psychotic and alcoholic mother. He finally was rescued and sent to foster care where he grew up with great parents. This is told in the second book, The Lost Boy, and now as an adult with many issues, he writes about his adulthood, his first unsuccessful marriage, his work with abused children, being a parent and a second wonderful marriage to his editor. Not really a fun read but a very worthwhile one.
