A powerful and groundbreaking work about reclaiming the body from shame and trauma.
‘Brave, unflinching and infuriating, the stories Lucia has collated are ones that desperately need to be heard.’
‘Osborne-Crowley writes with an elegant precision about this most urgent of subjects. Like the human body, this book contains a warning: if we do not attend to its revelations, there may well be pain. Bold, sharp and compassionate, this work announces Osborne-Crowley as a writer with great purpose.’
‘A beautiful and deeply moving book, and one that is vitally important. Lucia Osborne-Crowley has written an insightful and moving witness statement for women who live with the consequence of assault and abuse, and for the world that has refused to see. Our bodies hold our traumas, and Osborne-Crowley refuses to keep the silence anymore.’
