Eve Ensler's The Apology
'One of the most shatteringly brilliant books I have read. As soon as I finished it, I read it again, and again, and again' Decca Aitkenhead, Sunday Times
'A masterpiece. Truly one of the most courageous and original works of our time' Naomi Klein
'One of the most original and profound books of the decade' Johann Hari
Like millions of women, Eve Ensler has been waiting much of her lifetime for an apology. Sexually and physically abused by her father, Eve has struggled her whole life from this betrayal, longing for an honest reckoning from a man who is long dead. After years of work as an anti-violence activist, she decided she would wait no longer; an apology could be imagined, by her, for her, to her.
The Apology, written by Eve from her father's point of view in the words she longed to hear, attempts to transform the abuse she suffered with unflinching truthfulness, compassion and an expansive vision for the future.
