Don't let the title fool you! We know that rape isn't funny--but having a sense of humor after the fact can help. This novels follows Edie, a record label talent scout, in the aftermath of date rape. Navigating sex, pleasure, work, friends, and her forever-changed mental state after of her assault is hard enough. But when the perfect guy turns up at the worst possible time, Edie has to figure out what romance and sex mean to her now. This offbeat feminist romantic comedy moves beyond “girl meets guy,” dealing with sexual dysfunction, the ubiquity of rape culture, and what recovery looks like in a world filled with reminders of your assault.
"Rape Jokes is, without question, the best portrayal of the aftermath of a rape that I have ever read in a novel."–Goodreads
"Rape Jokes was an intense but rewarding read. First off, let me forewarn that, unsurprisingly, this book can be triggering. But, as a survivor, I can also attest that I found it deeply relateable and empowering."–LibraryThing
