All The Rage - A Quest

Martin Moran

More Information

Description:

A moving and surprisingly funny memoir about finding the right balance between anger and compassion "Why aren't you angry?" people often asked Martin Moran after he told his story of how he came to forgive the man who sexually abused him as a boy. At first, the question pissed him off. Then, it began to haunt him. Why didn't he have more anger? Why had he never sought redress for the crime committed against him? Was his fury hidden, buried?

Hiking the Rockies with his troubled younger brother, he's confronted by the anger and the love that seem to exist simultaneously and in equal measure between them. With each encounter, we move more deeply into the human complexities at the heart of this book: into how we wrong and are wronged, how we seek redress but also forgiveness, how we yearn to mend what we think broken in us and liberate ourselves from what's past. It is in this landscape of old wounds and complicated loves that Moran shows us how rage may meet compassion and our traumas unexpectedly open us to the humanity of others. "Moran brings his appealing acting skills and keen sensitivity to the subtle ebb and flow of his story's pathos. He is absolutely engaging to hear, and his performance gracefully balances the moderation of an objec
