This boys Life is the story of Tobias Wolff's childhood. When his parents separated, he lived with his mother while his brother went to live with their wealthy father(a child support deadbeat). Tobias Wolff's mother struggled with earning a living and got mixed up with various abusive men. It would be interesting to read this book along with Tobias Wolff's brother's memoir and contrast them for a book club. It is called the Duke of Deception by Geoffry Wolff.
