I just posted the book, Tiger, Tiger:  A Memoir, by Margaux Fragoso.  Amazon's description:

"In this gut-wrenching memoir of sexual abuse, Fragoso, who has written short stories for various literary magazines, explores with unflinching honesty the ways in which pedophiles can manipulate their way into the lives of children. Fragoso met Peter Curran at a public pool in Union City, N.J., in 1985 when she was seven and he was 51. He seemed harmless, and invited Fragoso and her mother back to his house. This marked the beginning of Curran and Fragoso's 15-year relationship, which ended when Curran committed suicide at age 66. Fragoso's home life was strained—her mother was in and out of psychiatric wards and her father was an alcoholic—and Curran's home, with its myriad pets and lack of rules, became her refuge.  Fragoso's sense of alienation—Curran controlled her world for more than half her life—is palpable in her telling. Using her own diaries and the myriad letters, diaries, and photographs Curran left behind, Fragoso eloquently depicts psychological and sexual abuse in disturbing detail."

I am fairly certain this is the only paperback copy in the system.  It is absolutely brand new, as I just received it a few days ago.  I read it and did not like it.  I am offering this book for one credit.  Please PM if you are interested in this title or any other titles on my bookshelf.  All reasonable offers will be considered.  Thank you for looking and enjoy your day.
