    They can be interesting, teach lessons, and it's nice to see people triumph over adversity. The Boy called "It" was one of those I read and although difficult, it was uplifting. No matter how difficult our lives, we can always find someone somewhere with something worse going on.

    Walter Oobleck keeps coming back...or going, and going, and going

    First time I've read/heard the expression...had to use a search engine to look-see. Does The Painted Bird qualify? Saw a list of about ten stories shelved as "misery-lit" at Goodreads. I'll have to check out a story. Any recommendations?

    DJ-are you talking about "A Child Called It?" Did you read the next two-"The Lost Boy" and "A Man Named Dave?" Dave Pelzer had a speaking engagement around here a few years back and I didn't find out until the day after!! I was so bummed.
