A harrowing and heartbreaking yet ultimately hopeful audiobook about one of our society's deepest shames, from Shannon Molloy, the author of the critically acclaimed memoir, Fourteen.

Part memoir, part investigation into the taboo topic of male child sexual abuse, You Made Me This Way is a very personal audiobook, driven by Shannon revealing his own experience of having been sexually abused as a young child, and his grappling to understand how this has shaped him. The majority of men sexually abused as children never speak about their past and hide their shame and trauma away, forever carrying an enormous burden on their own, often with terrible consequences. Shannon interviews survivors, learning about their hard-won insights, as well as experts, researchers and therapists, making this book a vitally important step in encouraging conversation about what we must do to better support these men and the systematic changes needed in order to better protect children in the future. Raw, honest, deeply important and inspiring in its courage, this audiobook shines a light on this darkness in our society – and the challenge to all of us is not to look away.

‘A harrowing and heartbreaking yet ultimately hopeful book about one of our society’s deepest shames ...'
Catherine Milne, HarperCollins Publisher

'A moving, taboo-breaking exploration of childhood sexual abuse. Shannon Molloy's sensitivity is a gift to a country where young men are encouraged to keep their shame a secret.'
Lech Blaine, author of Car Crash

'Through the deep fractures of trauma, Shannon Molloy writes with tenderness, conviction and above all, heart. Reading these experiences, shared from the farthest brinks of vulnerability, is uncomfortable, yet wholly necessary.'
Brandon Jack
