Abused by his priest, betrayed by his church: the story of the boy who sued the Pope.
`I was living in a world where a priest who spoke the words of God used me for sex, and there was no-one to tell. The world where this horror happened didn`t exist for anyone else.`
"... a crucial document in the charting of a dark period in our history. It is also a story of bravery and survival, of strength and resilience, and will serve as an inspiration to many readers."
"...a determined and fluent individual who has turned the trauma of his life into an extraordinary form of empowerment. O’Gorman transcends much of his terrible anger and brings some sense of resolution to what was, and is, a dark period in the story of modern Ireland"
