A Good and Happy Child by Justin Evans

Something is wrong with George Davies. It’s not just that he won’t hold his own baby. It’s far deeper than that. It goes back to when George was a boy who’d recently lost his father. Lonely and alienated, he met a secret friend. A secret friend who changed everything, George most of all. After years of suppressing memories, the adult George, with the encouragement of his psychiatrist, delves back into the horrors of his own past and begins writing them down. And horrors they are. But he has to face them if he has any hope of moving on and being a father to his son. A beautifully written literary page turner with true darkness at its heart. I love any story about childhood secrets long buried, especially if they involve a friend no one else can see who may or may not be a demon.
