Abandoned by his father and a mother forced to work long hours to sustain the lifestyle she'd only just become accustomed to, Terry and his brother are left to return home each day from primary school to an empty house. Although hard working, Terry's fiery Italian mother and a tough builder father, rate material wealth high above showing love to their two children. That is until his father begins an affair. Then things go from bad to worse. An acrimonious divorce, and health problems conspire against him, and his world falls apart. Made homeless by his own mother, Terry struggles to sort his life out. Friends offer temporary shelter, but depression only serves to exacerbate his problems. He becomes angry with his family and bitter at the world. Latchkey Boy is the true story of a neglected child. It gives a vivid insight into his early life, and is a clear and frank account of a miserable childhood that almost ended in tragedy.
