Through memoir, two authors unravel the stories of their own experiences with sexual assault and the trauma that comes after. In Things We Didn’t Talk About When I Was a Girl, Jeannie Vanasco interviews her abuser, a high school friend, while dismantling our ideas about victimhood and the language of sexual assault. Karen Stefano’s What a Body Remembers: A Memoir of Sexual Assault and Its Aftermath charts her journey of confronting her anxiety and PTSD thirty years after her assault and her attempt to track down the man who attacked her.
