Reviews

'Cuts through the silence of deep betrayal, gives contour to the aching space between forgiveness and absolution, and offers a living testament to the endless wreckage of sexual assault.'

* Amy Jo Burns, author of Cinderland *

'Explodes rape culture at the level of language, shows us how we are trapped and how we might make ourselves free. This is a brilliant book, an astonishingly fierce inquiry into the places language won't go.'

* Emily Geminder, author of Dead Girls *

'Vanasco has written exactly the book we need right now. I wish everyone would read it.'

* Melissa Febos, author of Abandon Me *

'Brave and compelling... Vanasco muddles through the silt of her thoughts to create a language for something we don't talk about.'

* The Paris Review, staff pick *

'A brilliant book, an astonishingly fierce inquiry into the places language won't go.'

-- Emily Geminder, author of Dead Girls

'Brave and urgent... a searching, brilliant book and Vanasco is a formidable talent. We are lucky to have her.'

-- Daniel Gumbiner, The Boatbuilder

'Wickedly clever and powerful... a necessary book.'

-- Krystal A. Sital
