Ten years ago Erin Haley was a young woman named Corinne Staub who was possibly gang-raped. She changed her name. She changed cities. She thought she changed her life. But there is no getting past her strange dreams and oddly distorted memories. Compelled to return to her store-away journals for the truth, Erin confronts what really happened to the person she once was—discovering a subtly absorbing story of desire and betrayal, weakness and deceit. And, in the process, she recovers a part of herself which she had abandoned.
“A complicated, disturbing, unflinching portrait of violence, complicity and rage. Chillingly unaware of implication, Mazza’s narrator—numb, shell-shocked, traumatized—strikes the perfect balance between frenzy and control.” —Carole Maso
“Penetrating examinations of gender roles and identities. . . . Highly original.” —Larry McCaffery
