Waterstones Says

An incredibly potent memoir of resilience in the face of severe trauma, Know My Name recounts Chanel Miller’s sexual assault and the subsequent outcry over the lenient sentencing meted out to her attacker.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING MEMOIR

'Incredibly moving and haunting' Roxane Gay

'I read this book cover to cover and it stunned me' Jia Tolentino
'Powerful, honest and necessary' Marian Keyes

'To girls everywhere, I am with you. On nights when you feel alone, I am with you. When people doubt you or dismiss you, I am with you. I fought every day for you. So never stop fighting, I believe you.'

Chanel Miller's story changed our world forever. In 2016 Brock Turner was sentenced to just six months in jail after he was caught sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. His light sentencing, and Chanel's victim impact statement, which was read by eleven million people in four days, sparked international outrage and action.

Know My Name is an intimate, profoundly moving memoir that exposes a patriarchal culture biased to protect perpetrators, a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and ultimately shines with the courage required to move through suffering and live a full and beautiful life. Entwining pain, resilience, and humour, this breath-taking memoir will stand as a modern classic.

'I could not put this phenomenal book down' Glennon Doyle, bestselling author of UNTAMED

'To read Know My Name inspires hope' Guardian

'A searing, beautiful book' Sunday Times

'Know My Name marks the debut of a gifted young writer. Miller's words are purpose. They are maps. And she is a treasure who has prevailed' New York Times

MEDIA REVIEWS
Powerful, honest and necessary -- Marian Keyes
A beautifully written, powerful, important story. It marks the debut of a gifted young writer. * New York Times *
Extraordinary woman turning pain into power. Chanel Miller, it's a privilege to know your name, and to celebrate it -- Thandie Newton
You are a brave soul. You are more than the identity given to you by the media and those in power -- Monica Lewinsky
A searing, beautiful book * Sunday Times *
In a world that asks too many survivors to keep their experiences to themselves and shrink their suffering to preserve someone else's potential, Know My Name stands unapologetically large, asking others to reckon with its author's dazzling, undiminishable presence. To read it, in spite of everything, inspires hope. * Guardian *
I can't wait to read it -- Dolly Alderton
In its rare honesty and its small details, KNOW MY NAME is both an open wound and a salve, a quiet cry and the loudest scream...[it] is more than an indictment, though it is a successful and moving one. It is also an outstretched hand, inviting you to fight alongside her * Elle *
A skilled writer... Miller tells [her story] beautifully, caring enough for her reader to spin golden sentences from her pain * Vogue *
I read this book cover to cover and it stunned me: Chanel Miller is such a lushly talented writer -- Jia Tolentino, bestselling author of Trick Mirror

“One of the best books read”

“Must read”

Know my Name by Chanel Miller is not an easy read.

It is a book that talks about a very important topic, sexual assault. As it happened in the US, it focuses on how the system works there but that can happen... More
