If sexual shenanigans disqualified candidates for Congress, the U.S. would have no government. But what if the candidate was a pro-choice Republican supported by feminist groups-and a college rapist whose secret could be exposed by a leading women's rights advocate?

Again and Again tells the story of Deborah Borenstein-as an established women's rights leader in 2010 Washington, DC, and as a college student, thirty years earlier, whose roommate is raped by a fellow student. The perpetrator is now a Senate candidate who has the backing of major feminist groups . . . which puts Deborah in a difficult position. Torn between her past and present, as the race goes on, Deborah finds herself tested as a wife, a mother, a feminist, and a friend.

Review quote

"Ellen Bravo's debut novel is like she is-brave, poignant, tough, assured. The story tugs you in, and doesn't let go. If you're banished to a desert island this coming season, take some good sunscreen, and this novel."

-Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean

"Core concepts of commonsense and feminism come to vibrant and subtle life in Again and Again."

-Gloria Steinem

"An exceptionally well written and absorbing novel from beginning to end, Again and Again showcases Ellen Bravo's truly impressive skills as a storyteller."

-The Midwest Book Review

About Ellen Bravo

Ellen Bravo was born in Cleveland but has lived in Wisconsin long enough to be a diehard Green Bay Packers fan and say "c'mere once" and "you bet." A lifelong activist, she is the former director of 9to5 (the group that inspired the movie) and current head of Family Values @ Work, a network of state coalitions working for family-friendly policies. She is the award-winning writer of three nonfiction books, the most recent being Taking on the Big Boys, or Why Feminism is Good for Families, Business and the Nation. Bravo lives in Milwaukee with her husband; they have two adult sons.
