Brother's Journey : Surviving a Childhood of Abuse (Reprint) (Paperback) (Richard B. Pelzer)
About this item
- A Brother's Journey will appeal to the same audience that made #1 New York Times bestsellers of Dave Pelzer's popular novels: A Child Called "It" (Health Communications, 1995), The Lost Boy (Health Communications, 1997), and A Man Named Dave (E.P. Dutton, 1999), which have sold over six million copies combined. - There is a strong market for memoirs detailing traumatic experiences, as demonstrated by the success of A Million Little Pieces (Nan A. Talese, 4/03) and Running With Scissors (St. Martin's Press, 2002). - Subsidiary rights have already been sold in England and Japan. - Available as a Time Warner AudioBook.
The sibling of the child featured in "A Child Called It" describes how after the removal of Dave from the family, their alcoholic mother turned her abusive attentions to the author and prevented his escape by hiding the severity of his injuries.
