In the last few months I've had occasion to blink at some fairly extreme portrayals of the book I wrote.
Facts have surprisingly little bearing in such matters, but for the sake of completeness I felt I should toss a couple of them out there.
Below are both the rape scenes in the book. Technically they constitute spoilers, so take advantage of the spoiler space if you need to or if you feel they might be too harrowing.
1) I saw what they did to Mother, and how long it took.
2) The fat girl had a lot to say, just like her father. Screeched like a barn owl: hurt my ears with it. I liked the older one better. She was quiet enough. So quiet you'd give a twist here or there just to check she hadn't died of fright.
