Abstract:

Martin Moran's family lived in a Denver neighborhood, but what seemed most central, most important, was that they belonged to Christ the King--the church and school up the hill. And what Martin learned, as a good Catholic boy, was that the Hereafter was what counted; the here--fickle and unreliable--was the problem. Martin's world changed abruptly when, at the age of twelve, a church-camp counselor seduced him. In his memoir Moran takes us deep into the ongoing sexual relationship that followed the seduction, explores its effects upon his adult life, and finally confronts the perpetrator, now an old man in a veterans' hospital. In examining the paradoxes of human relationships, Moran manages to uncover divine grace in the most unlikely forms.--From publisher description.
