Fascinatingly disturbing, this memoir chronicles seven years in the life of a distinctly unordinary American family. In 1973, while Jamison struggled with adolescence, he faced a father who fed his family from dumpsters, an overweight Mormon mother, and a cruel sister who delighted in physical abuse.
