Hooligan, a Mormon Boyhood

Reviewer Richard H. Cracroft

Autobiography or personal history seems to be a favorite literary genre among the Latter-day Saints, probably because it deals with truth (not fiction), recreates our unique personal dramas of conversion, and enables us to render an accounting of our earthly stewardship. A memoir is a selective autobiographical narrative that focuses on the subject's role as a participant in or a witness of significant events. Douglas Thayer's Hooligan, a Mormon Boyhood is a memoir that makes growing up during the Great Depression in the Sixth Ward of Provo, Utah, a significant event.
