Product Overview

She invites the reader into her life and into the questions raised by a crime with no obvious solutions or easy answers. We see the dimensions of a human struggle often kept hidden from view. While there are an estimated twelve million rape survivors in the United States, rape is still unspeakable, left out of our personal and cultural conversation. In "Telling," Francisco has found a language for the secret grief carried by men and women who have survived rape.

Praise
"[Francisco's] intimate account of rape's repercussions includes details about the strain it put on her marriage (she and her husband struggled for 13 years before divorcing) and Francisco's decision to tell her young son about her ordeal. Francisco...encourages others to start a dialogue about the 'unspeakable' crime."
