  1. Dear Ms. Hirsch,

    Thank you for “Fragments.” While not yet finished with Not That Bad, I know that this is a book I will revisit time and time again. Your piece is powerful and relatable. It makes me feel nauseous and almost itchy, and the discomfort is painfully satisfying. Thank you for naming some of the subtle and explicit manifestations of rape culture. I think you’ve given a voice to many, and I feel empowered with your words tucked in my backpack.

    Best,
    Alex
