Book Summary

This unforgettable memoir of boyhood in the 19650s, a true modern classic, introduces us to the young Tobias Wolf, by turns tough and vulnerable, crafty and bumbling.  Separated by divorce from his father and brother, Toby and his mother are constantly on the move.  As he fights for identity and self-respect against the unrelenting hostility of a new stepfather, his experiences are at once poignant and comical, and Wolff masterfully re-creates the frustrations, cruelties, and joys of adolescence.  His various schemes--running away to Alaska, forging checks, and stealing cars--lead eventually to an act of outrageous self-invention that releases him into a new world of possibility.
