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.' 'A rueful, razor-sharp memoir ...Sebold tells what it's like to go through a particular kind of nightmare in order to tell what it's like -- slowly, bumpily, triumphantly -- to heal' Sarah Kerr, VogueHide synopsis
