– Dave Pelzer’s My Story
Dave Pelzer’s remarkable journey from a child who lived in terror of his unstable, violently unpredictable mother’s every move, to his emergence as an inspiration is a remarkable tale of survival and the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. Dave Pelzer’s three volumes of memoirs – A Child Called ‘It’, The Lost Boy and A Man Named Dave – brought this story of courage and triumph against all odds to the world, becoming global bestsellers. My Story brings these volumes together, following Dave from a childhood spent in fear, his tempestuous teenage years haunted by the spectre of his mother, through to his adulthood, and his great achievement of not only understanding and reconciling the story of his own life, but his dedication to helping others overcome similar adversity. It is a remarkable story of courage and survival.
