The son of abusive and alcoholic parents, economist and author Richard McKenzie was placed in a home for children in North Carolina at the age of 10. Unsentimental and honest in its approach, this unforgettable first-person account of growing up in an orphanage in the 1950s is a vivid reminder that institutional care can be the best choice for children in the worst circumstances.
