Forster was one element of the cruelty meeted out on "new boys.". At times My own memories and nightmares led me to ask myself - did this really happen? wake me in the morning provided me the answers which helped. I realize the book could be re-traumatizing but at least the truth came out.
In my opinion, what he wrote about me, his former room-mate, is extremely disquieting, inaccurate and cruel. Mr. Walker was not part of the class action preferring to seek out and interview victims for this book in a rather bizarre fashion by tracking them down, taping them and photographing them, when most wished only to be left in peace and alone. Since I was very active in the class action, I opposed his activities for obvious reasons. It appears that he too was allegedly abused, but Mr. Walker was able to deal with his abuse by investigating the late Harold Forster for 30 years. He once told me that Forster ''had done him a favour''. Well, he and others certainly did ''not do me a favour''. I personally buried my recollection (which came out in periodic and ongoing psycho-social aberrations) until the rage was unleashed upon the full realization in 2008 of what it had done to me all my life.
Would I recommend the book - yes and no. Yes, because it is an excellent historical account of what went on there, and No, since his writings have upset and re-victimized many victims, in addition to his Forster-centric focus. The reality of the complete abuse story was much wider than that at that elite school. I wish Mr. Walker well.
