An Affront to Normalcy
30 April 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
"While We Were Watching the Waltons" is an affront – an affront to “normalcy”. It not only helps us see the world from other perspectives, but also challenges its readers’ to question authority, support those who do, and look inside and out, to see what lies and stories we believe and tell ourselves daily. Creating characters (real and imagined), and using words that have meaning and depth, is no easy task. Not many do it justice. Ms. Hughes is an exception to that reality. She does it very well.

Honesty and bravery were the two words that came to mind as I read the last page of this book. There were so many meaningful quotes that I earmarked them to look back on in the future. I will recommend it to everyone!
This book is a small collection of essays, varying in style from hybrid to academic-exploring the impact of sexual trauma, harassment, bullying,misogyny.
The structures of the patriarchy and its insidious tentacles.
This book holds a particularly special place in my heart.
