Description

Acclaimed author Margaux Fragoso explores her childhood experience with a pedophile with painful honesty. Fragoso had met Peter Curran when she was only seven and he was 51. Desperate to escape being around her mentally unstable mother and her alcoholic father, Fragoso spent increasingly more time at Curran's home. Soon, Curran would guide their relationship into sexual territory-a relationship that ended with Curran's suicide 15 years later.

Professional reviews

"Margaux Fragoso's memoir of her 15-year relationship with a pedophile, starting when she was just 7 and ending when he committed suicide, is a devastating, haunting, yet eloquently rendered work. Narrator Susan Bennett inhabits Margaux from her youthful innocence to her teenage depression and her growing confidence in early adulthood, as she is all the while manipulated by her abuser, Peter. Bennett's portrayal of Peter, in turn, conveys his coerciveness--sometimes subtle, sometimes blatant--as he systematically breaks down Margaux's barriers and insinuates himself into all aspects of her life. Even though Margaux seems in retrospect to be aware of his manipulation, it's evident that she still retains affection for him. Bennett also excels in her portrayal of Margaux's narcissistic, verbally abusive Puerto Rican father. She delivers a difficult and sometimes graphic work with excellence. S.E.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
