A complete trilogy which is a candid, true memoir of a gay man's life, telling a story of love and loyalty, betrothal and betrayal, triumph and tragedy; charting one gay man's attempts to rise above the legacy of a traumatic childhood.
The first book deals with Simon's childhood friendship and eventually love affair with an older boy and early sexualisation, the second the trauma of his teenage years and early adulthood, the third his struggle to maintain equilibrium and the disastrous consequences of his failure at one point to achieve that and his fight back to self acceptance.
Based on the author's own life, it will strike a chord with many who have been through similar things, as well as those with an interest in such matters, such as police and probation officers, those involved with the gay / LGBT community etc.
It's a varied, exciting, demanding, sometimes terrifying life story. Of adult nature in places, it contains some explicit sexual narrative, including sexual violence.
