Anderson grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in Mount Vernon, New York, the youngest child of an alcoholic, abusive father. He escaped his situation by quitting high school at sixteen to join the Marines. Four years later, while on leave to attend his father's funeral, he stuns his mother with a question that has inexplicably haunted him since he was a small boy: Was the man who had so tormented him in his childhood his real father? His mother swears him to secrecy, and he honors their pact for nearly thirty-five years. Their secret, in ways large and small, defines the course of his life.
