When you're sexually abused by your own father, how can you go on to trust other people? Lord Scott Hamylton's confessional autobiography, Inner Cry, details the deeply moving story of his dysfunctional upbringing, his struggles in coming to terms with his past, and his homosexuality amidst the strife of the Apartheid movement. Hamylton weaves a complex narrative of past and present, living in South Africa and in England, and recounts tales of his father, whom abused him and the family's servants, and candidly explores his own sexual history and sexual abuse of other men. Relationships fail because he hides from himself, and puts on a masquerade to protect himself from others as well as the doubt and guilt of his own mind. Personal tragedies help him to come to terms with his real self, and find solace in life.
