This gripping memoir deals with a journey back from addiction and suicide. From a childhood of fear and rejection, the writer fled into adulthood fueled by ever-increasing doses of alcohol and drugs. A near-death experience forces him to confront the wasted years and potential within him, to transcend the self-hatred which sometimes besets gay men, and to engage in survival and triumph. Dramatically written and completely devoid of self-pity, this memoir is both a cautionary tale and a call to action.
