DetailsLittle Brown Aged thirteen. Theo Decker, son of a devoted mother and a reckless, largely absent father, survives an accident that otherwise tears his life apart. Alone and rudderless in. . New York. He is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He is tormented by an unbearable longing for his mother.
