Courtesy of the publisher:

This anthology of poems about rape and sexual abuse—many written by victims themselves, and well-known poets such as Marge Piercy and Adrienne Rich—brings to light a topic that has been all but neglected by the mainstream publishing industry. These powerful poems will shock you with their candidness, touch you with their emotional edge, and amaze you with their perserverence of spirit.
