Reviews

'A work of astonishing compassion, insight, and care.' Ellena Savage, author of Blueberries 'An extraordinary achievement, told with such clarity and anger, so much truth, but also with such love and hope and vulnerability.' Sophie Mackintosh, author of Booker-longlisted The Water Cure and Blue Ticket 'This book brilliantly interrogates our relationship to our bodies but also to those around us, inhabiting each daily, hourly, minute-by-minute contradiction that having a body, and so being alive, entails. A testament to the power of externalising our own stories so as to understand them through others' eyes, demonstrating how inextricably connected each of us ultimately is. Her writing is beautiful, unflinching and clear and, most importantly, it renders shame visible - a material thing that, having been sewn into the body, can also be cast off ' Olivia Sudjic, author of Sympathy (shortlisted for Salerno European Book Award and Collyer Bristow Prize), Exposure and Asylum Roa 'This book is a burning manifesto for the revolutionary act of articulating shame and trauma. It is a testament to the feminist praxis of listening to each other's stories in collective solidarity as a refusal of erasure and a way to claim presence and power in the world.' Jessica Andrews, author of Portico Prize-winning novel Saltwater 'Through the stories of women and non-binary people about abuse and recovery, as well as her own experience of sexual assault and chronic pain, Lucia Osborne-Crowley reaches the depths of haunting secrets locked into the body, and exposes the connection between untreated trauma, inflicted shame and long-term illness.' Nataliya Deleva, Author of Peroto Literary Award-winning novel Four Minutes
