One Dirty Tree
In Noah Van Sciver's new funny and heartfelt memoir, he is haunted by memories of growing up in a big, poor, Mormon family.
Noah Van Sciver is haunted by the house at 133 ____ Street, or as his brothers rechristened it "One Dirty Tree."

Growing up in a big, poor, Mormon family-surrounded by comic-books, eight siblings, bathtubs full of dirty dishes-Noah's childhood exerts a powerful force on his present day relationship.
