    5. I've been waiting for this book for a long time. I don't read much nonfiction, but Martin Moran is a writer for whom I'll gladly leave my genre comfort zones -- he writes beautifully, invariably finding the timeless and universal in the specific and personal. I can't wait to see what he writes next.

    6. Martin Moran is a favorite Broadway actor of mine. This is his second book about how he has dealt with the sexual abuse he experienced as a boy at the hands of a camp counselor Not a happy subject, but Moran has a fluid and poetic writing style and a compelling story to tell.
