    3.5 stars. Like any collection, there were stronger and weaker entries. And in some ways, I think there's something incredibly important about this kind of personal-is-political, consciousness-raising collection that talks about sexual harassment, rape, assault (all of which we now metonymize with MeToo). At the same time, for some reason it didn't connect with me that deeply and I don't know why. I didn't feel overly shocked or shattered by these grimly normal accounts of harassment, demeaning 3.5 stars. Like any collection, there were stronger and weaker entries.

I didn't feel overly shocked or shattered by these grimly normal accounts of harassment, demeaning treatment, and molestation/rape/assault. It felt like a grind toward the end, which I think it's meant to, but it didn't hit me where I think it was supposed to hit.
