Marian Henley's beautifully illustrated memoir tells an emotionally resonant story about the wonder and redemption of raising a son after surviving extreme male violence.

This poignant graphic memoir describes the most difficult conversation between a mother and her son -- the one about the two rapes she experienced as a young woman. It's something she always knew she would share with her son, but the process of doing so is harder -- and more freeing -- than she could have imagined. This difficult but beautiful story chronicles how she overcame trauma and violence to find love and healing as a mother. Drawing on her decades as a professional cartoonist, Henley's elegant black ink illustrations, trademark humor, and witty writing style shine through even in the darkest moments and tell a story of survivorship, parenting, and hope.
