NOT THAT BAD Dispatches from Rape Culture

by | Read by Roxane Gay, Brandon Taylor, Emma Smith-Stevens, A.J. McKenna, Lisa Mecham, Vanessa Martir, xTx, Sophie Mayer

Contemporary Culture • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This anthology addressing rape is a compelling and nauseatingly exhaustive collection that offers variety in tone, gender dynamics, cultural practices, and so much more. Overall, the audiobook examines the normative ways humans intimately and violently respond to each other as social beings. It's baaaaad! Profoundly bad in a wonderfully uncomfortable way. The authors are both familiar and unfamiliar voices who holler, quiet themselves, play with language, and reveal subtly and directly. They work is heartrending, passionate, threatening, and confusing. All are consistently speaking out of awareness and acknowledgment. To have the impact they do, the works must be narrated in different voices. Such a powerful and necessary collection! T.E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
