There is the sense that Bob Sherman's family story, travel story, and photography story do indeed intertwine and impact one another, but I think he could have written a separate book about all three of those topics. He deals honestly with personal doubt and struggle and I appreciate his sharing of his own experiences of abuse and shame. He does a good job cracking the door open on his experience with the sometime strange-to-western-Christians religion and spiritual disciplines of the Hindu faith. His perspectives through the viewfinder of his camera (and the resulting images that are published) are often stunning in their simple but profound telling of the story in that particular instance.
I read the book in the Kindle format but because of the photographic images might have enjoyed the book even more in the printed version.
Robert Sherman seizes the upper hand from sexual abuse by placing it back into its proper context as only one of many experiences — good, bad, and neutral — that might occur in the course of a lifetime. Sexual abuse unquestionably influences, but does not have to define its victims.
Since repression of painful memories and trivialization of the damage from childhood sexual abuse are not only common, but encouraged in society, the gradual unfolding of the author's story closely resembles how discovery occurs for many — only after a long and confusing process of elimination. Endlessly fixing this and improving that, while the crux of the problem remains stubbornly elusive.
Written in the easy, conversational tone of a loving father passing down his stories to his children, The Wandering Hinjew invites all of us to speak up and break the chains of silence and shame lurking within our own families.
Relax and let the exquisite beauty of Dr. Sherman's photography and poetry lift your heart and take the sting out of what might otherwise be too challenging a subject to confront.
