Author Glen David Gold writes terrific novels about real, dead people—Charlie Chaplin, Carter the Great—but for his latest, Gold decided to write about himself. I Will Be Complete is an extraordinary, brutally honest memoir about irresponsible parents and a difficult coming-of-age, but if that sounds trite or commonplace, rest assured it’s as compulsively readable as Gold’s books about people he doesn’t know.
