Enormously visceral, emotionally gripping, and imbued with the belief that justice is possible even after the most horrific of crimes, Alice Sebold's compelling memoir of her rape at the age of eighteen is a story that takes hold of you and won't let go.
Sebold fulfills a promise that she made to herself in the very tunnel where she was raped: someday she would write a book about her experience. With Lucky she delivers on that promise with mordant wit and an eye for life's absurdities, as she describes what she was like both as a young girl before the rape and how that rape changed but did not sink the woman she later became.
It is Alice's indomitable spirit that we come to know in these pages. The same young woman who sets her sights on becoming an Ethel Merman-­style diva one day (despite her braces, bad complexion, and extra weight) encounters what is still thought of today as the crime from which no woman can ever really recover. In an account that is at once heartrending and . . .

Helen was niet van plan haar dementerende moeder te vermoorden, maar voor ze het goed en wel beseft, heeft ze haar met een stapel handdoeken gesmoord. Spijt heeft ze niet meteen: is het niet beter voor haar moeder om op achtentachtigjarige leeftijd thuis te overlijden dan nog jaren te moeten wegkwijnen in een verzorgingstehuis? Helen doet haar best de sporen uit te wissen, maar elk besluit lijkt van kwaad tot erger te leiden en elke handeling voert haar verder terug naar haar jeugd en de gecompliceerde relatie met haar moeder.

A Susie Salmon (sí, igual que el pez) la mataron. Fue violada, asesinada y luego descuartizada en un campo de trigo cuando volvía del colegio una helada tarde de invierno. A sus 14 años, era una joven como tantas, que soñaba con ir a la universidad, conocer chicos, vestirse a la moda y ser actriz o fotógrafa. Pero ahora ya no está para contarnos sus planes, sus ansias de futuro… o tal vez sí. Desde la atalaya de su cielo, en el que ahora habita eternamente, Susie observa la vida en la Tierra de aquellos a quienes dejó. Desde ese cielo donde ahora puede concretar todos sus sueños de adolescente, Susie también relata de forma minuciosa la brutal preparación y ejecución de su asesinato, cometido por un conocido, un vecino del lugar, y descubrir que no es la única chica que ha hecho `desaparecer` dicho individuo. Una narración fría y distante de un acto perverso, en las que Susie intercala sus ingenuas y curiosas experiencias en su cielo. La realidad más atroz y perturbadora, junto . . .
