Last Night I Sang to the Monster


"At 18, Zach can only remember little pieces of his past life. This is partly due to the alcohol abuse that has landed him in a rehab facility. But it is, in larger part, due to something so terrible having happened to him that he has repressed his memories of it. In the process it has become like a monster inside him, so frightful he can’t expel it by himself.

Fortunately he finds two caring adults—his therapist, Adam, and his roommate (and fellow alcoholic), Rafael—who struggle to help him with the work of remembering and recovering.

There is never a question of either Sáenz’s own extraordinary capacity for caring and compassion or the authenticity of the experiences he records in this heartfelt account of healing and hope."
