The Unsayable by Annie Rogers
What I love about this book is Annie Rogers' writing. Her ability to lift you up from the page into her 'own-ness' is exceptional. After recounting and reflecting back to her own trauma she grounds the reader with her story. Now invested, the reader is taken on a journey through a very deep dark place: the unconscious of a sexually traumatized girl.
One of the theorists she pulls from is Jacques Lacan. Someone whom I never felt any access to before reading this book. His use of language signifiers are picked up by Rogers and brought into frame with her case work. Truly a brilliant read.
