This is the tale of a polite and well-mannered boy named Alex who;
after being abducted by a pedophile, develops an incredible bond
with an angry and foul mouthed doll called The Gruff who teaches
young Alex how to find his voice. When Alex wakes bound in a wooden
coffin to manic cursing and abusing, he finds something he'd never
imagined having, a true friend. In the days that follow, a small
oddly tempered doll called The Gruff will teach Alex how to say no,
how to sharpen his claws and how to kill a man. And a triangle of
deception will leave Alex wondering who the real victim is. Based
on real events, this novel explores the philosophical theme of the
effect of the domestication of children through mannerly learning
and poses the premise that 'politeness is the discipline of abuse'.
