epub Out of the Madness

Book description

In his debut book, Ladd, age 23, recounts the frustrating and often depressing tale of growing up in the slums of South Dallas. Raised in a housing project by his drug-dependent mother, he observed a procession of dealers and hapless father figures steal his mother's attention and his family's food. He describes his experiences of busing and attending an all-white school; he details gang shootouts, evictions and becoming the father of a daughter who was born out of wedlock. As a book lover, his bolt-hole was the public library, where he spent entire days reading. Ladd's prose conveys the rawness of his upbringing. While his narrative thread is uneven, he writes in a fresh and animated voice, offering a view into a brutal element of American society. Author tour.
