To the Survivors: One Man's Journey as a Rape Crisis Counselor with True Stories of Sexual Violence

06-25-2019 06:49 PM CET | Politics, Law & Society

Press release from: Robert Uttaro

“A moving series of survivor stories...This book is both informative for the general public and supportive for those who have suffered sexual abuse. It is hard to imagine that members of either group will not gain from reading it.” - Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“An engaging examination of a painful subject, with a focus on healing and forgiveness.” - Kirkus Reviews

"To the Survivors weaves together many candid accounts to form a brave and alarming exposé of assault. It is a worthwhile, eye-opening project." - Foreword Clarion Reviews

To the Survivors is about one man’s journey as a rape crisis counselor with true stories of sexual violence shared by survivors in their own words. Gently and beautifully constructed, To the Survivors is moving, tender, sharp, and piercingly true all at once. Readers will encounter uncensored written stories, poems, and interviews from women and men who have experienced rape and sexual assault, plus the advocate-author voice that weaves their experiences together. The survivors are diverse in age, gender, and ethnicity, yet each gives a similarly raw and heartfelt account of his or her victimization and recovery. The authenticity and vulnerability with which survivors speak resonates profoundly. But this book is not just for survivors of sexual violence. Robert Uttaro believes anyone can benefit from the words in these pages, rape survivor or not.

"Egypt is the most important country in the world," Napoleon Bonaparte said in his first interview with the governor of St. Helena. This sounds grandiose, but Egypt does rank high among the countries of the world for its longevity as a civilization, the roles it has played in history, and its strategic location.
