It starts out with a bang in the first chapter, when, after sneaking out of the house from a nap with his mother, he is cornered by a homeless bum/pedophile whose attempt to abuse him is aborted by an attack from Paulsen's mother, and it appears that she also killed him. Further chapters decribe him witnessing his mother getting drunk numerous times, having sex with various men, traveling by car and boat to the Phillipines, witnessing shark attacks on passengers escaping from a plane that fell in the sea, watching a man get cut in half by a piece of corrugated iron during a typhoon in the Phillipines, among others. How this man survived such a traumatic childhood is beyond this reader's grasp. Does not slow down for one minute. Great book. Read it.
