Inspired by a troubled family history, this "book of grace and dignity . . . will be around for a long, long time" (Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin). In this "terrific" novel, award-winning author Dale Peck recounts the childhood of his father, Dale Peck Sr. (Jonathan Safran Foer). Raised in poverty with seven brothers and sisters in suburban Long Island, terrorized by an abusive mother, Dale Sr.'s life changes when his alcoholic father dumps him at his uncle's dairy farm in upstate New York. There, he begins to thrive, finding real love and connection with his Uncle Wallace and Aunt Bess. But ultimately, he is unable to outrun the chaos and violence of his old life.
