Summary
"Raised in the 1970s in Accrington, a small town in the north of England known primarily for its cotton mills, football team, and deep roots in the 'Respectable Working Class,' Graham Caveney spent much of his youth yearning to escape. Armed against the confusing nature of adolescence with a thick accent, books, and a record collection including the likes of the Buzzcocks and Joy Division, he hoped to someday cross, even if just in mind, into the world beyond the town borders. For Graham's parents, that way out was through education, a golden ticket for their son to do better than they did. But for Graham, it came with a price, as his head teacher, a Catholic priest, became not only his greatest mentor and supporter but his abuser as well. Now, as an adult, Graham attempts to reconcile his past and present in [this book], an intimate, insightful, and raw memoir about the ups and downs of coming-of-age and abuse. By turns angry, despairing, beautifully written, shockingly funny, and ultimately redemptive, it is a story full of challenges and wonder that will stay with readers long after they turn the last page."--Dust jacket
