Even the best and most advanced treatment of the day could not arrest Dr. Sullivan's drinking. At that time, Alcoholics Anonymous was just getting under way, so Dr. Sullivan underwent psychiatric intervention in a hospital -- a treatment doomed to fail with the alcoholic. And fail it did. Dr. Sullivan died in a cheap hotel room miles from his sons and wife at the age of 45.
The author describes the lives he and his brothers lived in the maelstrom created by his father; they probably only survived due to the love, warmth, and protection given them by their incredible mother. She's someone I would like to know. And the brothers hung together, finding black humor all around them. While it may not seem so, this is a very funny book filled with all the mischief 6 boys can get into.
I hope Luke Sullivan writes the book he alludes to on the last page of this book. I would certainly preorder it.
