Abstract:

The father figure is Leonard, the high-living, recovering coke addict and mobster. The son is James Frey, damaged perhaps beyond repair by years of crack and alcohol addiction - and by more than a few cruel tricks of fate. James embarks on his post-rehab existence in Chicago emotionally devastated, broke, and afraid to get close to other people. But when Leonard comes into his life, everything changes. Leonard offers his 'son' lucrative - if illegal and slightly dangerous - employment. He teaches James to enjoy life, sober, for the first time. He instructs him in the art of 'living boldly', pushes him to pursue his passion for writing, and provides a watchful and supportive veil of protection under which James can get his life together...
