The Incident

One incident described in the book started like a normal day. After being deprived of food for three days, his mother had given him twenty minutes to clean the kitchen and do the dishes. Staggering drunk, she grabbed a kitchen knife and began waving it in his face shouting, “If you don’t finish on time I’m going to kill you!” In her drunken state, Dave’s mother lost her balance and stabbed him in the chest. At first his mother took care of him, but didn’t take him to get medical attention despite his blood loss and the severity of the stab wound. But after a few days, Dave was left to take care of himself again.
