Abomination by Paul Golding

Cruising the seamy underbelly of London’s gay scene, James Moore Zamora is as eager to repel men as he is to seduce them. Handsome, sophisticated, intelligent, and vain, beneath his immaculately maintained exterior lies an elaborate network of deeply embedded scars from a lifetime filled with betrayal and isolation. Born to negligent, self-absorbed parents and raised among upper crust society on a picturesque Spanish island, at nine-years-old James is sent off to an exclusive Catholic boarding school in England. Met with savageness by his peers, and seduced by the twisted affections of his teachers, he soon develops a self-consciousness that passes for self-awareness and a profound cynicism that masks savage anger. Charged with linguistic precision, brutal honesty, and caustic wit, The Abomination is a disturbing yet electrifying account of one man’s tortured coming of age.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

A memoir that is mostly disturbing, and goes through a life of innocence, then alienation, defiance, and finally anger. The book 433 pages long, and i strongly recommend it to someone who can't sleep. The scenes go on and on and it comes to the point that you just want them to be over. I was bored and was did not enjoy the read.

Yes, cold, yet very powerful. Although there were times when the story seemed to drag on a bit with it's extremely discriptive nature, the overall story was one that I could relate to in a way.
