Self relates the story of his horrific childhood in a matter-of-fact, dispassionate tone, yet somehow manages to salvage some kind of affection for his titanically selfish parents. As a Brit, he seems to be immune from the American disease of turning every setback into something sentimental and "life-affirming," yet the book was still quite touching and brought me to tears with its last lines. His realization that he is repeating his parents' mistakes will break your heart.
The best memoir I've read in years.
Well, I could, to a point. After spending most of the book talking about how screwed up his childhood he then details how screwed up his adult life became. Apparently he became the very person that he despised - like a mix of both his parents, and maybe a few brothers as well. I did keep reading though....
It's not until the closing pages that we begin to see some light in this guys life. This, thanks to some therapy and self examination. I had to wonder why he didn't seek therapy long ago instead of turning to drugs, drink, and "self abuse". I think the book itself is part of his therapy.
To me, the book is a well written and compelling, but ultimately depressing and self serving memoir. But, maybe that's what a memoir is meant to be?
I couldn't put it down.
