Street date: November 2008


Author/Artist: Alfred & Olivier Ka

Age Rating: Mature

ISBN: 978-1-56163-543-6


Based on the true story of author Olivier Ka’s relationship with a pedophile priest, this graphic novel presents very simply the grey areas in such a situation: how he had tucked the whole episode deep within, then how his rage and self-pity let it all out, and finally how he came to revisit the priest near his death and come to grips with the entire experience.


Excerpt: “Peter was a populist priest.  He was cool.  He was funny.  He was no priest, just a regular guy.  It’s like I had another uncle.  A great one, who laughed, who sang, who tickled.  Until he took us for summer camp.  Until we were so close, temptation came in the picture.”
