A memoir and a book of poetry came my way last week. What about you?
What a Body Remembers: A Memoir of Sexual Assault and Its Aftermath by Karen Stefano. Karen Stefano's story of recovering from a violent sexual assault in college and the PTSD she experienced even decades later has a particularly interesting twist -- she went on to become a criminal defense attorney who defended those accused of crimes as horrible as the one committed against her.
Phoenix: Transformation Poems by Jessica Goody. This new book of poetry is on tour now with Poetic Book Tours. Check back here for a review on June 30.
Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.
