A Few Inspiring Words  
Aug. 22, 2014
Author:  John Wareham
Category:  Non-fiction: Memoir
Description:  A kaleidoscopic literary memoir that reads like a gripping novel.
Fifty years on, a distinguished alumnus accepts an invitation to share a few inspiring words with a visiting class from his former high school, where beatings by masters were commonplace, and sexual abuse came as consolation.
With unerring wisdom and dark wit, John Wareham revisits the inner life of a rebellious, visionary child, whose disturbing emotional, sexual, and spiritual journeys pass through the valley of death in New Zealand to a startling enlightenment in New York.
Rights available:  USA, British, International.
