About this title


A candid but dispassionate memoir presents the experiences of a man who came of age in the 1950s and endured a lifelong struggle as a molested child, son of an alcoholic, and sexual deviant. 40,000 first printing. $50,000 ad/promo. Tour.

From the Inside Flap:

At the age of five, Michael Ryan was molested by a neighbor. Nearly 40 years later, he found himself methodically preparing to seduce a girl who was barely more than a child. As Ryan describes his free fall into sexual obsession, he creates an autobiography that is at once harrowing and redemptive, heartbreaking and profoundly moral. "By turns repelling and seductive . . . absorbing and disquieting."--New York Times Book Review.
