Dominic Carter, the host of New York 1’s political show “Inside City Hall,” has long interviewed America’s most high-profile politicians, newsmakers, and world leaders, among them Nelson Mandela and President Clinton. For the first time, Mr. Carter has put himself on the receiving end of his journalistic scrutiny.

The result is a book to be released in May, “No Momma’s Boy,” in which Mr. Carter seeks to look unflinchingly at his childhood and his mother, Laverne Carter, a paranoid schizophrenic who sexually abused him at least once.

When his mother died in 2001, Mr. Carter said he was determined to confront the memory of abuse he carried from the Bronx housing projects where he grew up, to the State University of New York at Cortland, where he met his wife and received a bachelor’s degree in journalism.
