The Best Known Unknown is the memoir of John, a man trying to break away from the depths of depression, and the mental and physical abuse he endured from his family. He was born in 1946 in the Bronx, and as a child clings to the lessons and teachings of his father, as he fights through the dysfunction of his mother's family.
