Poetry. Tangling the language of social-scientific investigations of rape, media constructions of perpetrators and victims, and autobiographical memory, DISTANCE DECAY moves through that linguistic (and conceptual) mess via disclosure and even lyric. In attempts to come to literal terms with the experience of rape, the book establishes a play/ground in language for personal, historical emotion through personality theory and affective genealogies.
