The Tricky Part: One Boy's Fall from Trespass into Grace

by Martin Moran
£12.99   paperback  Souvenir Press (2006)

The Tricky Part: One Boy A wonderfully written, thoughtful account of the sexual abuse suffered by the author, and how it affected his life.
 
Martin Morgan grew up in Denver where what seemed most central, most important, was that his family 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 counsellor seduced him. In his memoir, Moran takes us deeper into the ongoing sexual relationship that followed the seduction, and for the first time he explores its effects upon his adult life. And finally, in a scene of stunning power and restraint, Moran confronts the perpetrator, now an old man in a veteran's hospital.
