    In this subversively funny memoir, the acclaimed New Yorker humorist and Canadian expat Bruce McCall tells what it was like to grow up in Simcoe, Toronto, and Windsor, Ontario, crammed into shabby and close quarters with a family that was dysfunctional before the word had even been invented. Bruce McCall’s father was an inaccessible tyrant. His mother drank to blunt the effect of her husband’s rages and to dodge the duties of taking care of six children.
