Loved this book!  In the poor Massachusetts mill town where they lived the Dubus children were taunted, teased without mercy. Dubus saw himself as the family protector and learning how to fight, he actually enjoyed inflicting violence on another, felt exhilarated after doing so.  Fortunately, Dubus turned to writing, found an outlet in words. TOWNIE is the story of one man who overcame almost impossible obstacles to find peace and love.

Townie: A Memoir by Andre Dubus III. Having read The House of Sand and Fog, I thought Dubus was of Middle Eastern descent- I was shocked that he is really a Massachusetts Townie!

Went to see the movie with my sister, we had a good time, but I was disappointed with the movie...the book rocks though!!
