SUMMARY Lucky By Alice Sebold READ Î Lucky By Alice Sebold In a memoir hailed for its searing candor and wit Alice Sebold reveals how her life was utterly transformed when as an eighteen year old college freshman she was brutally raped and beaten in a park near campus What propels this chronicle of her recovery is Sebold's indomitabl. This is what I remember This is the first line in Lucky Alice Sebold s memoir of her rape and its aftermath It s the kind of first line that hooks you as you stand in the aisle of Barnes Noble or as you browse the Look Inside feature on It s the kind of line that demands you read further In five words swollen with portentousness it makes a lot of promises An author needs to have a certain amount of guts to start a book like that Alice Sebold has them and All the words that follow are testament to this every page is an act of courage The first thing that jumps out at you even before that opening line is the title Lucky Is that supposed to be ironic Blackly humorous Or somehow the truth Sebold answers that uestion immediately with a brief lyrical prologueIn the tunnel where I was raped a tunnel that was once an underground entry to an amphitheater a place where actors burst forth from underneath the seats of a crowd a girl had been murdered and dismembered I was told this by the police In comparison they said I was luckyBut at the time I felt I had in common with the dead girl than I did with the large beefy police officers or my stunned freshman year girlfriends The dead girl and I had been in the same low placeDuring the rape my eye caught something among the leaves and glass A pink hair tie When I heard about the dead girl I could imagine her pleading as I had and wondered when her hair had been pulled loose from her hair tieI will always think of her when I think of the pink hair tie I will think of a girl in the last moments of her lifeSince Lucky was published back in 1999 Alice Sebold has gone on to great fame and fortune as the author of The Lovely Bones That 2002 novel was on the New York Times bestseller list for over a year As with any pop cultural phenomenon however there was an inevitable backlash These days it s hard to find people who can say a kind word about it Eight years and a subpar film later it has become easy to pretend that we were never moved But in that passage above you see all of Sebold s gifts on display She s not a complicated stylist rather she hits her emotional beats by dint of perception She captures the small details that can raise the hair on the back of your neck And in every sentence you see the catharsis I am not a huge fan of memoirs I think everyone has a story and everyone is entitled to tell it but I m just not going to read it Unless you re a president or a war hero or the guy who invented Diet Pepsi you probably don t need to publish a memoir I don t like reading books about people with whacky families or who were heroic recreational drug users That s not uniue and it s seldom enlightening Rather it smacks of calculation A way to get Harper Collins to give your rough draft a look see Hey I m a talented writer who needs a break What should I do Maybe I ll snort a line of heroin off that prostitute s buttocks and write about that Those thoughts admittedly cynical never slipped into my mind while reading Lucky It didn t feel commercialized it wasn t manipulative It was therapy There s no other way to describe it Sebold writes nakedly about an intensely private violation in cringing detail You can almost see her dissociating in front of you allowing her to write with a kind of reportorial detachment The opening pages are unforgettable as Sebold graphically and unflinchingly describes her sexual assault At times her writing is clinical at times oddly poetic She alternates smoothly between short simple punchy sentences and flighty novelistic turns of phrase For instance during the rape she wrenchingly describes being forced to give oral sex Here the prose is dry workmanlike almost like the transcript of a court proceeding just the facts as they happened And maybe that s the only way it could have been written because the detail is so precise you want to look away To have veered away from objectivity might have been unbearable Even so it often felt like an invasion of privacy to be reading this almost like you ve opened a super secret diary Then smoothly Sebold will shift styles such as the way she describes how she talked to her rapist I forgive you I said I said what I had to I would die by pieces to save myself from real death The beginning of Lucky is like a punch in the gut Its honesty and power leaves you drained You will read it in one gulp of air unable to stop to breathe Of course that tension cannot be maintained Nor should it The rest of Sebold s story is about coming to grips with that moment and the way she tells this story expresses in its way what it felt like for her to put life back together There is a certain feeling of anticlimax in the writing that mimics Sebold s post traumatic stress She struggles with shame alienation and the eventual trial of her rapist And out of nowhere there s even a cameo by Tobias Wolff If you come by this book it s probably for one of two reasons first you liked The Lovely Bones second you have a personal need for Sebold s insights Adult rape is a hard crime to classify It s easy to get tangled up in legal arguments about consent or to reduce its seriousness by hinting that the victim somehow had it coming Even with DNA it s a crime that is often impossible to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt Yet in a very real way rape is as serious as murder It spares the finite of a person s body while destroying the infinite of the soul This is why I read LuckyThe first girlfriend I ever had in college was raped at a frat house We were both freshmen a few months into our first semester still in that sheltered bubble of youth where bad things only happen to strangers She went out with friends I made the decision to stay in and study Thus for me the first lesson of college the choices you make can be the choices you cannot unmakeI didn t see her again for a couple days I heard the news of course but she was busy with those things you hope you never know Later after the late night trip to the hospital and the rape kit and the meeting with detectives from the sex crimes unit and a phone call home that I can t imagine but have spent many hours imagining I went to visit her in her dorm room When I saw her she was cowering in the corner and the look in her eyes that mingling of fear and alertness is something that I ve never forgotten The only thing I can compare it to is my dog Henry who I rescued from a shelter when I first got him whenever I raised my voice he got that same slinking terrified look as though waiting for his next beating As a man I m genetically incapable of understanding what the experience meant for her Indeed unless I m convicted of a felony I probably never will All I d ever know was the external stuff how we broke up how she walked about campus with a certain listlessness how she started smoking and drinking and doing things she hadn t done before and how she dropped out of school a year later and disappeared into the rest of her life while I stayed with the rest of mine It would be insulting to think my imaginative powers could conjure a fraction of her reality though it has never stopped me from trying So when I picked up this book long after my freshman year had passed I did so with purpose I wanted to read this for her Thin Air Jessica Shaw #1 searing candor and wit Alice Sebold reveals how her life was utterly
