"MIEDO: Living Beyond Childhood Fear" by Kevin Cooper is a gripping drama that slowly creeps up on you. We know of the fear the young boy lives with from a haunting prologue, before taken back to happier times. As we follow the seemingly biographical childhood desciption we wait for the event that will turn things from unspoilt to spoilt.
Childhood fear is something so painful and damaging and the author really brings out the horrors of it. Trauma, paranoia and insanity blend together. A well written and powerful novel.
