A beautiful, raw and compassionate memoir about identity, love and understanding. The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life in small town Arkansas, as a young man Garrard Conley was terrified and conflicted about his sexuality. When Garrard was a nineteen-year-old college student, he was outed to his parents, and was forced to make a life-changing decision: either agree to attend a church-supported conversion therapy program that promised to “cure” him of homosexuality; or risk losing family, friends, and the God he had prayed to every day of his life. Through an institutionalized Twelve-Step Program heavy on Bible study, he was supposed to emerge heterosexual, ex-gay, cleansed of impure urges and stronger in his faith in God for his brush with sin. Instead, even when faced with a harrowing and brutal journey, Garrard found the strength and understanding to break out in search of his true self and forgiveness. By confronting his buried past and the burden of a life lived in shadow, Garrard traces the complex relationships among family, faith, and community. At times heart-breaking, at times triumphant, this memoir is a testament to love that survives despite all odds. A movie is in the works starring Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Lucas Hedges, directed by Joel Edgerton and produced by Anonymous Content and Focus Features.

fajn
V týchto naozaj krásne napísaných memoároch hrá veľkú rolu viera a rodina. Conley hovorí o období života, kedy ho rodičia poslali na terapiu, ktorá z neho má spraviť heterosexuála. Ku knihe ma priviedol film s Nicole Kidman, Russelom Crowe a Lucasom Hedges v hlavnej úlohe. Kniha predstavuje čitateľovi komplexné vzťahy kresťanskej rodiny a snahu hlavného hrdinu pochopiť sámeho seba.
