Mickey: The Giveaway Boy
Lisa Kastner, contributor
By the age of 25, Mickey’s mother had born five sons. By the age of 30, she’d gotten rid of them all. For nine-year-old Mickey, the early fifties were not the Ozzie and Harriet fantasy of love and security. Instead, they were years of abandonment, unimaginable cruelty, and virtual slavery. This memoir reveals Mickey’s devastating experiences of being handed off from one abusive person to another ... all in the name of survival.
