A Rock and a Hard Place

Description:
Anthony Godby Johnson was born in 1977. Until he was eleven years old, this blond, sunny, bright youngster in a New York City program for gifted children was subjected to continuous physical and sexual abuse by parents who looked "terrifyingly" normal. They beat him regularly, withheld food, refused to let him have a bed to sleep in, a coat to wear, or a toothbrush. They invited their friends to use him sexually. But no one knew Tony's family secrets. At last, at age eleven in suicidal despair, he called a national hotline - and found his rescuers.In his own words, with compassion and a wisdom born of suffering and genius, Tony now tells his remarkable, harrowing story - the true life tale of a boy who refuses to succumb to bitterness and hate but believes in love, and who courageously fights to live, not merely survive - even after he is diagnosed with AIDS. Like The Diary of Anne Frank, this moving testament by a young teenager touches our hearts and our consciences...and tells us a truth about the human spirit we desperately need to hear.____________________________________________________________The Publisher's Note in the second paperback printingincorrectly states that A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE is a work of fiction, when in fact, it is non-fiction. Penguin Books USA Inc. has apologized to the author for the error and is taking a number of steps to correct the error.
