What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape

What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape

From the introduction:

"Rape is always a catastrophe. Rape is not always a catastrophe. Rape is like any other crime. Rape is not like any other crime. It’s all true. Except for the foundational belief that rape is a crime, with a criminal and a victim, I will not take anything else for granted."

"Rape drains the light. I want to let some light back in. I don’t have answers, but I hope to at least illuminate some of the questions and assumptions we all carry around with us. We must talk about rape, and we must talk about how we talk about rape."

What We Talk About…is published by Myriad Editions/New Internationalist (UK), Penguin/Random House Australia/New Zealand, The New Press (US), and Penguin/Random House India.
