Little Boy Wild was a small boy who did not have permission to be alive, and this is his epic real-life journey as an abused child in search for himself. It is fearless, hauntingly beautiful, and sometimes disturbing. Whenever he can, he lives wild with the animals - his only true friends, while he seeks to avoid the "Humans" who may cause him to "opt out" and hide far within himself. It is rare for a work of this magnitude to appear on the literary scene, but in spite of all the hurt involved, Little Boy Wild moves forward in his quest for self-identity and love with hurtful self-searching honesty.
Wild Boy's personas are deeply split and fragmented. His adventures may well come across like the reading of a psychiatrist's highly confidential doctor-patient journal of record - all wrapped up in hilarious humour and rollicking fun!
His psyche switches between two major personalities, plus the Preacher and the Move Director. Frequently he sees Little Boy Wild "outside of himself." He is also psycho-sexually warped and is unsure as to whether he is gay or not. Eventually he blows his mind apart with LSD, but in the final analysis - out of all the hell of psychosis, something very beautiful occurs.
Little Boy Wild and I struggled "Phoenix-like" throughout our tragic childhood and turbulent teens, to an adult life under the guise of "normalcy." We later discovered that we were gifted the pain of emotional and physical torture, in order to become an entity of extraordinary resilience and strength. This now enables us to see with eyes that know the unknowable, and to understand that which others can only approach as a frontier to be explored.
