Synopsis
David Ray’s soul search, recounted in this powerful illustrated memoir, is a Dickensian tale — encompassing a childhood in an orphanage, an endless series of abusive “uncles,” and an adolescence haunted by a sadistic guardian, followed by a tumultuous adulthood marked equally by tragedy and triumph. With rare candor and unsentimentality, Ray — winner of the William Carlos Williams Award, the Marianne Moore Award, and the Allen Ginsberg Poetry Award — writes about finding hope within a society that first generates abusers then empowers them, ignoring victims’ pleas for help and enforcing their silence.
