More About Lucky by Alice Sebold
 
 
 
Overview
With Lucky, Alice Sebold fulfills a promise she made to herself at the time of her attack as an eighteen-year-old college freshman in Syracuse, New York. She swore to herself and those around her that she would someday write a book about her experience. Sebold recounts her fifteen-year struggle through emotional denial, heroin addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder in visceral detail and with natural wit and humor.

When Oprah Winfrey read the author's article on rape in The New York Times Sunday Magazine, she invited Sebold to appear on her show to discuss the question of whether to fight back when a rapist attacks. Lucky will shed light on the reality of violence in our society -- and make accessible an experience that has largely remained cloaked in mystery and taboo. This moving story is sure to win praise for its narrative suspense as well as for its outstanding literary quality.
