About the Author
Stephen Thrower is the acclaimed author of Beyond Terror: the Films of Lucio Fulci and the groundbreaking Nightmare USA: The Untold Story of the Exploitation Independents. He is widely regarded as one of the most authoritative historians of exploitation and underground cinema writing today. Julian Grainger has written for Shock Xpress and Sight and Sound, and is coauthor of Cannibal Holocaust and the Savage Cinema of Ruggero Deodato.
Stunning, heartbreakingly real and at once a strong, unflinching story of poverty and socioeconomic inequities that haunt us in our imperfect country. Violence against children, homelessness and food insecurity will weigh on your heart as Rex tells his story. His story is more powerful because he is not alone, as this is an all-too-common theme in some households. A truly superb memoir and one that will never be forgotten. - Reviewed by Maureen
