Youmay have heard of Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary, Léon Toltstoi'sAna Karenina,Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House  or Leopoldo Ala's La Regenta, but have you ever heard ofKate Chopin's The Awakening? Chopin's novel has very much in common...

Thank you, Harley King, I haven't , but I've heard of it before! I'm reading Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth at the moment (also a very interesting read).

The Gift of Reading

The Gift of Reading

Finding the time to read can often be a strenuous task. In the midst of the chaos that is life, one can easily forget to take a time out. To find a moment to breathe. To think. When you do, however, the sense of liberation that comes with reading...

I also love how you extended this reflection to other kinds of art. Although I have a soft spot for books Visual art can also be super expressive.

I believe such dialogue exists and its ongoing with characters and author. There are many instances in which this connection will be more noticeabe or obvious depending on style. But even when, lets say, an indirect style or a self effacing style is being used in which the author is making an active effort to not be noticed in the text, there is always a connection. I was actually going more for the connection you experience when reading certain lines in a book which reflect your sate of mind very Well (regardless of whether this is done purposedly) 😊

Survivors VS Victims

Survivors VS Victims

I’ve been sick for weeks; groveling in tributes to my body in the form of chicken soup and OJ. Lowering myself to this status began when I attended a speaking engagement on sexual assault and rape at a local college. I coughed mightily throughout...

I worked in an engineering dept for a few years. My life was data. Can't wait to see yours. As for believing me or not, I fear doubt can be sowed by such an assertion so here: https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/7b65dac3-7014-4afb-85ed-38b22be59d91 . I spent my life advocating for victims because of this. I saw how the system is stacked firsthand here: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@joyce-bowen/deception., Now--these were children, but the system does not really discriminate. If it doesn't like you? I've dealt with adult victims. It is disheartening. One of my favorite courses was on boundaries. Rape and sexual assault are about violating boundaries. If people have to take a firm stance in order to level the playing field, so be it. I hope the movement experiences success. But here we go with that deck again--it is stacked against them--just because there is a law on the books and charges are filed, does not mean the District Attorney will prosecute. DAs have rather broad latitude in what cases they choose to prosecute. It happened in my first case. I guess what I'm saying is that data can be skewed to represent whatever it wants. You have to get down in the trenches and view it firsthand. You're a smart lady. You could do tremendous good. Get the whole picture and write about that. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/22/us/a-third-of-college-women-experience-unwanted-sexual-contact-study-finds.html

I've said NOTHING to indicate sexual assault is acceptable, Joyce. The only thing you've said that I question is the 25% statistic regarding college campus assaults, which has been criticized for being allegedly unreliable and for broadening the definition of sexual assault. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2014/12/15/critics-advocates-doubt-oft-cited-campus-sexual-assault-statistic I don't question *your* story at all.

Real writers, the ones who are writing because they can’t imagine doing anything else, are plentiful in this world. And thank God for that.These are the people who draw us into worlds we can’t imagine, or take us deeper into the one we can...

T hanks Jim. I now have a couple new good reads to find. If the new ones are as well done as the trilogy it will be worthwhile.
