The friendship, and the sexual abuse, lasted for three years.The abuse, and the relationship, shaped and scarred Martin. Told with startling honesty, humour and understanding The Tricky Part is the story of a complex friendship, a relationship that damaged but also inspired the transformation of Martin Moran's life.
