Duggan follws one neighborhood's struggle against drugs, sex, and violence perpetrated on innocent victims. 

  • SKU

Once a place where love grew and life and family were once cherished, Duggan has now turned into a valley of destruction. The people who lived there called it home. However, something came in and made the neighborhood change courses. Now, it is a misplaced neighborhood of people whose lives are intertwined by one decaying neighborhood. Duggan tells the story of several individuals and their struggle of survival. Among them are: Jackie, an innocent mother who suffers abuse before being brutally murdered; Donny, who convinces his best friend to commit a robbery that leads to his death; Jaycie, who, along with her boyfriend, struggles with pill addiction; and George whose wife becomes impregnated by another lover. Duggan is a story of race, a search and struggle for identity through lost beauty, a struggle for place through spirituality, family conflict, hatred, and drugs. Now each individual is left to fend for self, to fight and renegotiate their lives in an attempt to escape death or a deathlike state before it is too late. Original publication date: February 14, 2013 Republished June 19, 2015.

    the book was a great read from being to end and having being that the author of the book was my professor makes it even better due to the fact i got to understand the point of view on a one on one level. while the book opened eyes to new world that many have never even seen or have talked about. with great imagination with imagery and detailed explanations to explain the stories more in depth. the book is very good and i recommend it to people

    This book is an eye opener for those who are unaware of the struggle, and it's real issues. This reading is also a milestone for those who are apart of the struggle, because their stories are being told. You can not teach someone unless the problem is apparent, and this book lays out consistent problems low income families are currently going through. Readers will be moved, and can go out and be the change they want to be to end these struggles, hopefully it will effect society sooner rather than later.

    I’ve appreciated pretty much every segment of this book. I strongly adore how the author utilizes distinctive issues in today’s society. How the absence of instruction influences children and young adults, leading them to prostitution, and other drug addictions. It clarifies how poverty can easily break families, when being less fortunate you sometimes don’t get the same privileges as your peers and seem to have a different appearance. Overall the book is awesome I would definitely suggest to others.

    Such an amazing book. This novel pinpoint a number of different situations that minorities deal with. It had various emotional stories and that helped the reader use imagery throughout each sentence.
