Praise

“A completely engrossing coming-of-age tale…a defiantly happy book, big-hearted and sincere.”—Newsweek
 
“This is a mad sad story with soul and spirituality. A child rises to man in these pages, forgiving those who did him ill, and tells his story with compassion and warm humor. Read this book and cheer a child who triumphes over the darkness and indeed becomes a beacon.” –Malachy McCourt
 
“A story about suppression, humiliation, vindication and, ultimately, triumph.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Here is that rarity in these times, a truly marvelous book…big-hearted and humorous, written in simple, evocative prose.”—The Denver Post
