The New York Times bestselling memoir about identity, love and understanding. Now a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Lucas Hedges, directed by Joel Edgerton. "Every sentence of the story will stir your soul" (O Magazine).   The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life in small town Arkansas, as a young man Garrard Conley was terrified and conflicted about his sexuality. When Garrard was a nineteen-year-old college student, he was outed to his parents, and was forced to make a life-changing decision: either agree to attend a church-supported conversion therapy program that promised to "cure" him of homosexuality; or risk losing family, friends, and the God he had prayed to every day of his life. Through an institutionalized Twelve-Step Program heavy on Bible study, he was supposed to emerge heterosexual, ex-gay, cleansed of impure urges and stronger in his faith in God for his brush with sin. Instead, even when faced with a harrowing and brutal journey, Garrard found the strength and understanding to break out in search of his true self and forgiveness. By confronting his buried past and the burden of a life lived in shadow, Garrard traces the complex relationships among family, faith, and community. At times heart-breaking, at times triumphant, Boy Erased is a testament to love that survives despite all odds.… (mais)

This is not an easy read -- Conley shows the pain and destruction of family and love that come from the misguided attempt to "cure" homosexuality. All of this is very well done, but the text comes across as fragmented, in parts almost incoherent -- though this may have been the purpose, and then the purpose was fully achieved. ( )

The heartbreaking memoir of a boy who is sent to a conversion therapy camp to be taught about the evils of homosexuality. The "pray away the gay" mentality causes unbelievable damage to the people in the program. The memoir itself is slow moving. My book club selected this one and although I hate hearing about the pain the author went through trying to understand his sexuality in relation to his faith, it was good to learn about his experience to better understand the struggles so many others have faced.

This is an important book, but it is not a very enjoyable book to read. It is very heavy and depressing. However, I am glad this book exists to shine a light on a terrible thing. ( )

It's easy to see why this story would make a good movie, but I have not seen the movie. Although I appreciate Garrard Conley's story, I didn't love the book. This “pray away the gay” movement infuriates me, and this glimpse into what happens in one of these programs is enlightening and disturbing. The movement seems to have lost steam, although I wonder if it is gaining steam again under today's too conservative bent. Mr. Conley was honest and forthright, but the book didn't touch my heart the way I expected it to. Once out of the program, he seemed to minimize what is happening in his life now. Still, an interesting and sad story. ( )

Conley's book is jolting, enlightening and inspiring. He adeptly tackles a timely issue and explores it in a riveting way. I do agree with some reviews that suggest the narrative gets a bit disjointed at times. But it's an important work that provides many valuable insights. ( )

Yet she could see by their shocked and altered faces that even their virtues were being burned away.

-- Flannery O'Connor, "Revelation"
If I'm looking at that wall and suddenly I say, "It's blue," and someone else comes along and says, "No.no. It's gold." But I want to believe that that wall is blue. It's blue, it's blue, it's blue. But then God comes along, and He says, "You're right, John, it is blue." That's the help I need. God can help me make that wall blue.

--Ex-gay leader John Smid, in an interview with the Memphis Flyer
