By Neale P Blackwood 24 Jan 2011 4

A memoir told frankly and it seems to back up studies that claim much of our character is determined by our genes and not our environment. The author's environment was quite different and confronting. A fairly bleak story that always has you waiting for things to go wrong and they usually do its just a question of how bad things get.
