Summary

More
As a boy, Walter was quick-tempered and physically strong, always ready for a fight. He also read voraciously—he would check out books from the library and carry them home in brown paper bags in order to avoid other boys’ teasing. He aspired to be a writer (and he eventually succeeded!).

But as his hope for a successful future diminished, the values he had been taught at home, in school, and in his community seemed worthless, and he turned to the streets and to his books for comfort.
