Sample text

So I was going to be screwed up for a long, long time. And if I didn’t make recovery the focus of my life during the months ahead, I was going to be screwed up even longer. The truth is that at that time I more or less believed this grim prognosis. During the first weeks after my assault, I was shocked and overwhelmed, tired all the time but never able to rest. I acclimated to a new sort of fear, the fear that one feels after a violence you’ve only seen in films has made its way into your life.

And that night, as we shared our stories (and made that beleaguered account executive wait even longer before walking us out), Nobuko began to see me differently, I began to see her differently, and we set in motion a friendship that has become one of the constants of my adult life. It’s a relationship forged on more than just a shared history of violence. We are also both dog lovers, we prefer vinyl LPs to digital downloads, and we share a similar interest in Modernism. But it was that first, long conversation about the violence we’d lived through that transformed our relationship.

Nobuko’s feelings about her own experience are also shaped by a historical sense of sexual violence. “We did not talk about rape in my family, never. But I think I first learned of it in junior high when my father—who was interested in history—gave me a book called The Rape of Nanking, about rapes inflicted on the Chinese by the Imperial Japanese Army. It was a banned book in Japan at one time, but my father thought I should read it.
