A moving and surprisingly funny memoir about finding the right balance between anger and compassion

“Why aren’t you angry?” people often asked Martin Moran after he told his story of how he came to forgive the man who sexually abused him as a boy. At first, the question annoyed him. Then, it began to haunt him. Why didn’t he have more anger? Why had he never sought redress for the crime committed against him? Was he just plain frightened of his own hidden fury? Was he not man enough? And what exactly is rage anyway? What purpose does it serve in our lives?

Moran did the only thing he could do to try to reconcile these seemingly irreconcilable questions: he began to set it all down. With humility, humor, and masterful storytelling, he takes us on a journey from Colorado to New York to Johannesburg, jumping from dream to memory to fact. He finds himself in a wild confrontation with his fuming stepmother, in a room translating the details of an asylum seeker’s torture, in an S&M dungeon with a group of sex therapists, and lost in Africa with a guide who can’t read maps. Based on a one-man play that the New Yorker called “brilliant, funny, and touching,” All the Rage is a quest to find where rage meets compassion, and where justice meets mercy.

Reviews:

“Martin Moran is a graceful stylist with a rich, redemptive imagination. His sense of drama is unfailing, as is his sense of humor. . . . Most of us look for the selves we want to see. Moran wants to see the self he is.”
—Kathryn Harrison

“With a few words Moran captures, for one bright moment, what it is to be alive. All the Rage is a small jewel of a book.”
—Nick Flynn
