Download a free ebook of Peter Brown Hoffmeister’s The End of Boys, September 11–19, from Amazon.

In his first book, Peter Brown Hoffmeister demonstrates not only the strength of his writing but also his fearlessness when confronting the trauma of his childhood. With sobering honesty and gripping narrative, Hoffmeister has created a memoir masterpiece, one that will leave the reader shocked at its content while thankful for a story that can turn such raw pain into something beautiful.

The cover of the memoir immediately demonstrates the perilous state of Hoffmeister’s childhood. The family photograph is a striking image of two young, blond boys – one inhaling a cigarette with deep concentration (Peter), the other looking on, completely mesmerized (his brother).  And one need not question where their parents are – their mother is the supplier of the cigarette, a way to “make us artists like Picasso,” Peter confides.

The End of Boys is filled with gripping and disturbing anecdotes from Peter’s past, including being asked by his mother to kill a neighborhood cat to perpetually participating in fights, drug-use, and mischief. To read this riveting memoir, download your FREE Ebook from Amazon for one week only, September 11 to 19!
