Know My Name: The Survivor of the Stanford Sexual Assault Case Tells Her Story (Paperback)Chanel Miller (author)
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
