What do women want? To understand why. And so a rape victim confronts her assailants, asking them, pushing them, to explain why they did what they did. It does not go as expected.
A must-read for men and women alike.
"Edgy, insightful, terrific writing, propelled by rage against rape. Tittle writes in a fast-paced, dialogue-driven style that hurtles the reader from one confrontation to the next. Chock full of painful social observations …. " Hank Pellissier, Director of Humanist Global Charity
"This is not an easy book to read, and there are times when you just have to close the book and breathe. …" Mesca Elin, Psychochromatic Redemption
"It made me think (and will so for a long time) about the woman's place in society, about how men see us …" Alexandra, Goodreads
" … The idea of pinning down the inflictors of this terror is quite appealing …. " Alison Lashinsky
"A deftly scripted novella by an author with a genuine flair for a riveting narrative style of storytelling that will engage the dedicated attention for women and men from first page to last, Impact effectively showcases the personal and social consequences of misogyny ... While highly recommended for community, college, and university library Contemporary General Fiction collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that Impact is also readily available in a digital book format." Micah Andrew, Midwest Book Review
