Cartoonist Glenn Head’s graphic memoir Chartwell Manor is a disturbing chronicle of adolescent abuse, a jarring record of deep trauma, and an artful tribute to the power of memory and truth. For two years during his teen years in the 1970s, Head attended a boarding school in Mendham, N.J. operated by a serial sexual abuser who relentlessly manipulated and preyed on young boys at the school. In this five page excerpt, years after his attendance at the school, Head confronts his parents about his experiences at Chartwell Manor and their willful ignorance of what happened to him. Chartwell Manor is out now from Fantagraphics Books.
