'The authenticity and simple eloquence of this work makes it compelling, if dark, reading. The text cries out to heaven! It holds up a mirror to official Ireland, the Irish state and the Catholic Church...Read it, and weep'  Dermot Keogh

Peter Tyrrell's autobiography about his traumatic childhood with the Christian Brothers at Letterfrack Industrial School, and in war-torn Europe, as a soldier in the 2nd World War, as a Prisoner-of-War.

'The child who is beaten by someone bigger and stronger than himslef, will very often grow up bitter and full of hatred of society. He will want to get his own back. He may one day hit back.'    Peter Tyrrell, February 1959
