Description: On a golden autumn afternoon, photographer Patricia Evans, out for a run on Chicago's lakefront, was attacked by a man who severely beat and sexually assaulted her. Evans's husband, Jamie Kalven, has written the story of a family shipwrecked in the midst of everyday life, each struggling in his or her own way to make sense of the violence that has entered their lives. It covers a period of five years, during which Evans remaps the world in light of the terrible knowledge inflicted on her, and regains her place in it.

Evans's honesty and refusal to embrace easy answers create the space in which the story unfolds, and Kalven bears witness to her experience not by presuming to understand but by deepening his questions. The narrative evokes a richly textured world of family, friends, and neighbors; it takes in the sweetness of everyday life as well as the desolation of grief, the play of light upon the world as well as the enveloping darkness of terror. A profound inquiry into the effects of violence and a singular love story, this startling book again and again rewards the reader with fresh unexpected perceptions.
