(8),3-337,(8). 8vo, illustrated blue card covers, white lettering to front cover, white and black lettering to spine. "Gordon Rankin ('Rank') has a secret, one that he has been running from for almost his entire life. Having spent his youth cast as enforcer, a goon -- by his classmates, his hockey coaches, and especially his own father, Rank has never been a stranger to gossip or abuse. But twenty years later, an old, trusted friend --the only person to whom he has ever confessed his sins -- has published a novel mirroring Rank's life and his unspeakable secret. The betrayal cuts to the core of him, and forces Rank to confront the tragic true story that he has tried to bury. A diatribe, a prayer, an ode to what it means to be a man, Rank's painful, suspenseful, and often hilarious journey grabs us by the throat and the heart and never lets us go. This is Rank's turn to finally set the record straight." - from rear. Very good. 10.00
