Margaux Fragoso's jarring story of sexual abuse would be gripping even if it had not been so well-told. As Alice Sebold notes, Fragoso's portrayal of the 15-year relationship between pedophile Peter Curran is "shocking, revelatory, and fearless." The encounter of this uneven pair began with an innocent chat at a public pool in New Jersey: Margaux was seven; Curran was 51. With methodical escalations, he gradually coaxed the vulnerable child into imprisoning secret acts. In Tiger, Tiger, she documents the insidious impact of their continued liaisons on every aspect of her young life. Fragoso's unsparing self-exposure cuts to the heart of these violations.
