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.
