A difficult and challenging tale about a young American boy growing up in the 1950s, his relationship with his peers, his parents the church and his school. The story starts when Malcolm is six years old.
This is an unusual tale for this site, simply because of the starting age. It certainly looks very much like a tale that is inherrently "wrong" because of the relationships Malcolm has with far older males. But the story is a highly moral story with much to recommend it. It handles many types of prejudice. It dragged me in, screaming. The chapters when Malcolm is a teenager are quite terrifying
