b More About Dave b p br i A Man Named Dave i is the conclusion to a trio of autobiographical books by Dave Pelzer who to millions of readers of i A Child Called It i and i The Lost Boy i has become an inspirational figure i A Child Called It i is the gripping and harrowing account of Pelzer s abuse at the hands of his mother beginning when he was four years old and continuing until teachers and neighbors were finally able to intervene and he was placed in foster care at age i The Lost Boy i picks up where i A Child Called It i leaves off and details Pelzer s experiences in foster care and his difficulty navigating the normal world with the dark shadows of his abuse and of his mother s actual presence in his life looming over him br br p p In this installment Pelzer narrates his life from his enlistment in the Air Force at age to the present day While all three books show the consequences of profound cruelty with a frank immediacy and gut wrenching carefully chosen detail they are as the subtitle of this final installment of the trilogy suggests ardently inspirational works Pelzer s thematic focus is forgiveness and the ability of the human spirit to triumph over adversity Pelzer demonstrates that it is possible to channel feelings and experiences of trauma into positive energy br br p p Pelzer includes just enough flashback and summary material that the reader new to his work has a complete grasp of the scope of his mother s abuse and his experiences in foster care And those fans who have read his previous work will find i A Man Named Dave i to be an essential capping complement to i A Child Called It i and i The Lost Boy i br br p p i A Man Named Dave i describes Pelzer s more recent experiences and affords readers access to a more mature gradually ripening adult perspective during Pelzer s agonizing struggle to confront the demons of his past and conquer them To read all three works in sequence is therefore to experience a voyage from darkness with only a glimmer of hope to full illumination br br p p Throughout i A Man Named Dave i Pelzer carries with him a touchstone memory from his childhood on which he ruminates and to which he returns in his most acute moments of distress The memory is from his very early childhood when he and his father had a tender talk alone during a family outing to the Russian River This is an immensely precious memory for Pelzer who has an abiding love for the father who mostly stood by or was absent during the long period of his mother s abuse This treasured fragment from the past serves as a driving force in Pelzer s adult life he dreams of building a house on the Russian River and ultimately living there with his father br br p p Sadly this is not to be Pelzer joins the Air Force with the intention of becoming a firefighter which for a time was his father s occupation as well and while there he writes letter after letter to his father who responds only once in a mostly illegible scrawling letter that includes no return address Pelzer fears that his father is lost to alcoholism and vagrant wandering When Pelzer is finally alerted to the fact that his father is near death he rushes to be with him Pelzer s dying father is barely able to communicate but in spending his final days by his father s side Pelzer is able to begin to confront his childhood and to form a positive productive link to his traumatic past One of his father s final actions is to pass his cherished fire department badge on to his son br br p p The death of Pelzer s father means that he must also confront his mother who though she would have little to do with her husband during his decline and death makes her son feel ostracized and uncomfortable at the funeral The full grown Pelzer an outwardly successful man in an Air Force uniform must struggle to avoid becoming a craven boy in her presence once again The narrative is punctuated with such excruciating encounters between Pelzer and his mother br br p p Despite the fact that his mother no longer has any physical or legal power over him Pelzer is still dominated by her presence The scenes provide a telling portrayal of the consequences of childhood trauma and illustrate the almost epic immensity of Pelzer s ultimately successful struggle to overcome the legacy of his mother s abuse br br p p Essential to this struggle is that Pelzer realizes despite the welling of powerful emotions inside of him he must do all he can to not hate his mother or wreak vengeance on her in any form If he is to break the cycle of abuse he must confront his childhood and its effects on his adult life It is this triumphal will to come to grips with his past and somehow transmute its effects on his character into a positive view of himself and the world he inhabits that forces Pelzer to seek out and speak with his mother despite his instinct to run from this past and hide it from others br br p p In his depiction of himself as a young boy Pelzer showed how he used indomitable spirit to triumph over tyranny In i A Man Named Dave i he will inspire most readers as he makes his voyage to adulthood and a fulfilling life all the while struggling with the legacy of his abuse Part of this legacy is a difficulty with intimacy and attachment Pelzer hides much of his past from his first wife Patsy and is unable to tell her he loves her His self doubt contributes to the tumult of their relationship essentially a mismatch cemented by the discovery that Patsy is pregnant br br p p Ultimately the birth of his son Stephen is the final key to Pelzer s reconciliation with his past Stephen is a constant reminder to Pelzer of the preciousness of life and the imperative of breaking the chain of abuse so that Stephen will grow up knowing abundant love In order to provide this love to Stephen Pelzer must learn to love himself as well br br p p In a touching moment near the book s end Pelzer walks with his son to the very spot where as a child he remembers walking with his own father many years ago and sharing in the natural splendor The cycle of abuse has been broken and Pelzer shares his quiet triumph not only with his son but also with his readers p p David S Rosen p
