Why read it?

1 author picked What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

She waited 30 years for her story to receive widespread attention. Mine remained archived for 20. For both of us, society had to evolve enough to address the subject in a meaningful way. Like me, she reveals the stigmas and assumptions about the crime and its victims that make recovery such a challenge.
