M. Dolon Hickmon shares about the abuse he endured while growing up and how being spanked “The Right Way” almost destroyed him in this (*triggering*) letter he wrote to Michael Pearl. This post serves to introduce his Opus (a work of fiction) which apparently needs backers. However, it does seem like it could be of interest to my audience, especially since works of fiction have been known to be the catalyst for social reform in many cases. Some notable examples would be Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Ramona and The Grapes of Wrath.
Here is the author’s response to the question of why he doesn’t just get a publisher.
Update: The book has been published and got a favorable Kirkus Review.
Calulu has a book review of M. Dolon Hickmon’s book 13:24.
**** Warning! Book triggering for abuse survivors****
