Think about Hunter S. Thompson's book on the Hell's Angels and combine that with what you've seen on Sons of Anarchy, and you'll know the life the author led. Menginie was the son of motorcycle gang kingpin Anthony "Mangy" Menginie, a vicious leader of the Pagans motorcycle bunch and an even more vicious father. By the time the author was 13, he'd been present at as many funerals.

The book is a stark revelation of what life was like living as an insider--though never a full member--of the Pagans. He fetched drugs, carried a gun, and was in more fights than a heavyweight boxer. He never experienced the things most children do: love from doting parents, a sanitary and stable home, or any type of formal education.

This will keep you glued to the pages as the writer bounces from one horrible situation to the next. By the end of his memoir, "LT" seems to have learned just how wonderful life is and admits, "I am lucky." But you really have to wonder if he believes it.
