Book: Lost Memory of Skin

A 22 year old homeless boy lives under an interstate bridge in large Miami-like city because he is a convicted child molester and is not allowed to live close to anywhere where children might be.   He meets a hugely obese college professor who is doing research on homelessness and other things.  No one is quite who they seem to be and still not sure by the end of the book.  I really liked the main character and and you root for him to get out of his hole.  A different, very readable book that is hard to shake once you’re finished and hard to put your finger on.  I liked it though.

PJH rating: 4 stars.
