Nothing compels the emotions of readers more than an account, in skillful literary hands, of a harrowing childhood. At age
7, Margaux Fragoso lost her childhood innocence to the actions of a pedophile. Eventually, Fragoso hoped to "make sense of
what happened" by documenting her life. She amazingly manages to combine vivid recollections of abuse with empathy, and her
resultant memoir, Tiger, Tiger, accomplishes the unthinkable. It humanizes a pedophile.
