“Unusual and powerful work…A detective trying to solve the mystery of his spiritual life…A difficult but often captivating look at the legacy of abuse…Truly compelling and complex reflections.” —Kirkus Review

From age 4 until 18 (1951-65) he is conditioned like one of Pavlov’s dogs to scream and cry for his life at the hands of his biological father who is a monster.
