What We Are Reading Today: Nobody’s Victim by Carrie Goldberg

  • This book “is an urgent warning of a coming crisis, a predictor of imminent danger

Deeply personal yet achingly universal, Nobody’s Victim is a bold and much-needed analysis of victim protection in the era of the internet. 

In her memoir doubling as a rallying cry for privacy justice, attorney Carrie Goldberg admits that as with many people who have endured sexual harassment, it took time to tell her story in full, which she does now in chilling detail. 

In gripping detail, Carrie shares the diabolical ways her clients are attacked and how she, through her unique combination of advocacy, badass relentlessness, risk-taking, and client-empowerment, pursues justice for them all. 

This book “is an urgent warning of a coming crisis, a predictor of imminent danger, and a weapon to take back control and protect ourselves — both online and off,” said a review in goodreads.com.

It said that Nobody’s Victim “is the incredible story of how one lawyer, determined to fight back, turned her own hell into a revolution.”

In a review for The New York Times, Kate Bolick said the cases Goldberg narrates “are gut-wrenching, and her conversational approach lightens what could otherwise be an unbearably heavy load.”

Columbian star Maluma to bring his world tour to Dubai

DUBAI: Colombian star Maluma is set to perform in the UAE on Feb. 14 as part of his world tour.

The “No Se Me Quita” singer will perform at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena.

In 2018, the 25-year-old singer won a Latin Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album.

Maluma is not the only Latino star with events in the country — Shakira’s feature film about her concert tour will be screened on Nov. 13 and Nov. 16 at Reel Cinemas.

“Shakira In Concert: El Dorado World Tour” highlights what it took to bring the Colombian-Lebanese’s career-highlight show to 22 countries and nearly a million fans, after having to postpone the entire tour due to a vocal cord injury in November 2017.

The film will premiere worldwide in over 60 countries, for a one-night global event.

In 2018, Maluma and Shakira collaborated and released the song “Clandestino,” which took over multiple Billboard charts. 

Their 2016 “Chantaje” has over 2.4 billion views on YouTube alone.
