"At Holy Cross High School, you were either a football player or a ...."
Welcome to the world of Sporks! a novel about life in an all boys Catholic school. Set in the 1980’s, Sporks! chronicles the lives of Terry, Ducky, Moose, and Fetus, four sophomore cross-country runners obsessed with sporks, the hermaphroditic utensil that Ducky finds “beautiful and useless.” The boys’ quest for sporks instigates a prank war between rival high schools that results in sporked lawns and religious statuary and a host of other trouble.
Sporks! will make you laugh until you can’t. A joyful romp interrupted by an ugly reality, Sporks! confronts the hierarchies, prejudices, homophobia, and hypocrisy of all boys Catholic school. Reveling in adolescent antics, Sporks! ultimately aims at larger issues, like how can a church so defensive of pedophiles be so intolerant of homosexuals? And, how can an institution committed to preserving the lives of the unborn show such blatant disregard for the safety of its youth?
Sporks grew from my own experiences as a student and teacher in Catholic schools. It celebrates the imagination, energy, and camaraderie of youth, while documenting the sex scandal that ravaged my generation. The novel examines the cost of the abuse, not only for the victims, but also for the millions of Catholics who, as children, believed and trusted their teachers and confessors, only to discover in adulthood that some of their heroes were predators.Buy Sporks! at Lulu.com
