This memoir delves deep into the themes of social mobility, familial love, and endurance. Violence, treachery, and cruelty run through generations of Rick Morton's family, leading them into a world of poverty and drug addiction. Despite the challenges they face, the mother emerges as a hero, yet is never rewarded. A powerful testimony to the strength of family, this unflinching memoir is a meditation on anger, fear, and the borders that define us.
