"A Man Named Dave" is the conclusion to Dave Pelzer's trilogy of memoirs, the first two volumes of which were "A Child Called 'It'" and "The Lost Boy". From childhood, Dave was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother, a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games with her son's life; games his father chose to ignore and which the outside world knew nothing about. With extraordinary generosity of spirit, Dave takes us on his journey confronting his past. In a dramatic reunion he confronts his father and ultimately the mother who so brutally abused him. Finally Dave finds the courage to break the chains of the past and learn to love, trust and live for the future.

Reading this book bring to a close the life of Dave. How he overcome the abusive life to become the man and father that he is today makes for great reading. Just facing the problems head on as he did is something that people of my age was always told to keep silent. I can associate with since I faced the same problems growing up.
