A Review

An absorbing read, and a fascinating profile of a unique personality, an area, and an era. The quality of the detail is amazing--this is a first-rate memoir that allows the reader to step inside the truth of the author's own experiences of his childhood. Some of the events, like the tots taking a ride into the sky on the Duluth Lift Bridge, seem almost unbelievable, yet it's clear they really happened, and in the way they are described. His family might be called dysfunctional, but it was at the same time a source of strength. Each character is carefully and sensitively profiled. It's an often humorous, but also poignant and even hair-raising portrait of resilience. Today's children are rarely treated to such an up close and personal look at how their grandparents lived "back then." Highly recommended for young people and adults alike!
