When a boy’s childhood is destroyed by a vicious sexual predator, everything changes. With no one to turn to in his dysfunctional family, he lived only in fear with a single hope for salvation: music. Born with a synesthete’s ability to hear music in every sound around him, a guitar became the key for him to escape his existence in a halfway world. A true story of resurrection and reclamation, A Man of his Time delivers an honest, articulate, and poignant commentary on a lifelong struggle to recover from the most sinister side of humanity.
