Review by: Anthony Beal on June 04, 2014 :
An honest and astute critique of some people's tendency to devalue painful experiences that have never been and will never be theirs. I am in awe of Shannon Barber's ability to convey exasperation, restrained rage, and nerves worn raw by a worsening world, with such precision.
