A lot of the story is taken up with a reprint of a creative writing story which in itself works in the book as it explains a story but i think it was done to "bulk" the book out. I wont ruin the story for you but i found it so hard to sympathise with his charge in this instance and maybe that is why i found the book a real let down, i believe shanes skills would have been better spent elsewhere, but we live and learn and i am sure he has too.
Still one of my favourite authors but not his best book to date.
We meet Jason both as a 5 year old and then as a teenager. Shane tries to help him on both occasions. A great read.
The tale is well related as usual by Dunphy and sheds light on multi-generational transmission of sex abuse, a subject rarely covered in mainstream media, but, even knowing that these professionals must try to support their clients, I found it hard to stomach his belief as a child-care worker [not a defense lawyer, who would just be representing his client without prejudice] that a youth aged almost 17 who is a vicious nonce should be offered soft treatment because of his past. The front cover's talk of "paying for the sins of his parents" would only be true if he had no agency of his own, many (though not the majority of) abusers have been abused themselves in the past and still have to take the punishment when they harm somebody.
An instructive example could be found in R vs. "GM" and others , a court case involving 8 members of the same family taking part in abuse of two generations of children. The father of the first generation and grandfather of the young abused children was jailed for 25 years.Read more ›
