Take It As a Compliment

by Maria Stoian - £14.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2015)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781849056977 | ISBN 10: 1849056978

"I was fifteen."
"I never saw him again."
"They chanted after me, 'Oscar the Grouch, Oscar the Grouch."

 
Bringing together the voices of males and females of all ages, the stories in this collective graphic memoir reflect real life experiences of sexual abuse, violence and harassment.
 
Each experience is brought to life by Maria Stoian's exceptional artwork. Her unique and varied styles powerfully reflect the tone and mood of the different stories and in just a few pages express the complex emotions felt by victims of sexual abuse.
 
Covering acts such as sexual violence, public sexual harassment, domestic abuse and child abuse, this is a reminder for survivors that they are not alone and a call for all of us to take action. The stories clearly show that assault of any type is not an honour bestowed on anyone. It is not a compliment.
