PW Insider 11: Writing About Rape During #MeToo


When Sohaila Abdulali started writing 'What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape,' she thought she was writing an "outlying book on an outlying topic." Then the #MeToo movement happened. We talked to Abdulali about how the book came to be, what she learned, and how the conversation about rape changed while she was writing it.

'What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape' was one of 'Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2018. It is in stores now.
