WHAT A STORY…when I opened up my January issue of Harper’s Magazine, I had no idea what I was in for. I was tired and wanted a break from the AA stuff…hmmmm. I guess that was not gonna happen.
HOLY SHIT…Barry Lopez is a fantastic writer and tells this harrowing tale of a man who serially sexually abuses him from the age of 7, for 4 years.
For those of us on this blog, we know what is going on in AA. Yet I had no idea this story includes more Alcoholics Anonymous members covering up a hideous sex offender, pedophile. You can listen to the radio interview. But I hope , please read the full artilce from Harpers here. I think you have to be a subscriber to read the whole thing so I will try to see if I can get it for you somehow. Its unF**king believable. I think it explains how deep the history of cover up is in AA…not by Barry Lopez, but by his step father who became a big wig in AA in NY and a 1st cousins of his mothers in California.
