內容簡介

2018年電影鉅獻《被消除的男孩》原著,眾多媒體、作家、讀者一致好評!

「讓讀者忍不住祈求可以得到平等未來的精彩回憶錄。」─柯克斯評論

「令人動容,引人深思。」─書單雜誌

「傑拉德‧康利是現代重要、不可或缺的聲音。」─Ann Hood,美國作家


康利出生在美國阿肯色州的傳統家庭中,一家都是虔誠的浸信會教徒,自發現自己的性傾向以來,康利一直都很恐懼被他們發現自己的秘密。

在他十九歲那年,康利終於公開出櫃,告訴家人自己是同性戀,而這個決定換來一個艱難的決定。

虔誠的父母親告訴康利,如果不參加由教會主持的同性戀轉換療程,就只能和離開家人、朋友,還有每一天都會向祂禱告的上帝。

康利不想離開深愛的家人朋友,決定接受療程。經過這痛苦的療程,康利理應照著教會的計畫轉直,但結果卻是讓康利更了解真正的自我。

康利的故事不僅訴說著同性戀的困境,更反映了宗教、家庭和自我間的衝突。

A beautiful, raw and compassionate memoir about identity, love, and understanding from a survivor of 'ex-gay' therapy, soon to be a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Lucas Hedges, and directed by Joel Edgerton.

The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life in small town Arkansas, as a young man Garrard Conley was terrified and conflicted about his sexuality. When Garrard was a nineteen-year-old college student, he was outed to his parents, and was forced to make a life-changing decision: either agree to attend a church-supported conversion therapy program that promised to "cure" him of homosexuality; or risk losing family, friends, and the God he had prayed to every day of his life. Through an institutionalized Twelve-Step Program heavy on Bible study, he was supposed to emerge heterosexual, ex-gay, cleansed of impure urges and stronger in his faith in God for his brush with sin. Instead, even when faced with a harrowing and brutal journey, Garrard found the strength and understanding to break out in search of his true self and forgiveness.

By confronting his buried past and the burden of a life lived in shadow, Garrard traces the complex relationships among family, faith, and community. At times heart-breaking, at times triumphant, Boy Erased is a testament to love that survives despite all odds.
