Very bizarre memoir. Very dysfunctional childhood. Mother gave guardianship to her psychiatrist when he was 13.

Now we know what would happen if a Jackie Collins novel mated with a Stephen King novel and the story was made into a National Lampoon movie. This is a bizarre story of two dysfunctional families that is very-well written and oddly funny. It's a testament to human resilience that the author didn't grow up to be a serial killer.

Just... wut?

I didn't hate the writing, so I may read another of this author's books. Hence the 2 stars.

But this book... I can feel the filth.
