Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a memoir hailed for its searing candor and wit, Alice Sebold reveals how her life was utterly transformed when, as an eighteen-year-old college freshman, she was brutally raped ad beaten in a park near campus. What propels this chronicle of her recovery is Sebold's indomitable spirit - as she struggles for understanding (After telling the hard facts to anyone, from lover to friend, I have changed in their eyes); as her dazed family and friends sometimes bungle their efforts to provide comfort and support; and as, ultimately, she triumphs, managing through grit and coincidence to help secure her attacker's arrest and conviction. In a narrative by turns disturbing, thrilling, and inspiring. Alice Sebold illuminates the experience of trauma victims even as she imparts wisdom profoundly hard-won: You save yourself or you remain unsaved.

Jennifer, April 12, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer)
What should be a tragedy with the power to destroy the human spirit, is transformed into a brutal honesty that uplifts and inspires hope. This is a "MUST READ" for anyone who wishes to tap into their own personal strength.
