Inhaltsangabe: Trying to Get Some Dignity: Stories of Triumph Over Childhood Abuse evolved from Richard Rhodes's memoir, A Hole in the World: An American Boyhood, in which he told of the abuse he endured at the hands of his stepmother. Here is an oral history of child abuse--physical, mental, and sexual--and how its survivors dealt with it.
While talking with victims of abuse, the authors found that "each strategy [for survival] was original, imaginative, off the books, a tribute to the canny resilience of the human spirit. Collectively, like breathtaking third-act reversals, they promised to lift the narrative from one of pain to one of triumph."
Trying to Get Some Dignity will reaffirm readers' faith in their ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their own lives.
Über den Autor: Richard Rhodes is the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for The Making of the Atomic Bomb as well as other literary awards. He is the author of a dozen books and more than 70 articles. Rhodes's Dark Sun made national bestseller lists when it was published last year.
Ginger Rhodes is an independent producer/writer and a pilot.
