"Dominique Salas's debut collection, Unoriginal Danger, is an account of sexual trauma and survival that offers testimonio in a wry but heartbreaking voice. The writing is both vulnerable and fearless in its inquiry of agency: 'They say I was raped; rape happened to me; multiple men cycled through me like a revolving door; I am a survivor of a rape,' is a declaration in this brilliant and original first book's study of female agency. This is a necessary addition to feminist literature."
