Description
							"Why aren't you angry?" people often asked Martin Moran after he told his story of forgiving the man who sexually abused him. At first, the question pissed him off. Then, it haunted him. Why didn't he have more anger? Was he frightened of his own hidden fury? What exactly is rage, anyway? Moran did the only thing he could to reconcile these seemingly irreconcilable questions. He set it all down. With humility, humor, and masterful storytelling, he takes us on a journey jumping from dream to memory to fact. He finds himself confronting his fuming stepmother, translating details of an asylum seeker's torture, in an S&M dungeon with sex therapists, and lost in Africa with a guide who can't read maps. Based on a one-man play the New Yorker called "brilliant, funny, and touching," All the Rage is a quest to find where rage meets compassion, and justice meets mercy.
Reviews

"Moran's personal history is beautifully intertwined with his work as an interpreter for Siba, an African refugee seeking asylum in America after being imprisoned and tortured...A courageous release from the pain, guilt, and fury of sexual abuse." - Kirkus Reviews
