Product Description
 
Of Memory and Furniture is described by Julienne van Loon as 'a deeply feminist project', and by David Brooks as 'bold, explicit and unapologetic'. This collection in four parts explores experiences of female embodiment, sexuality, and relationships with family, lovers and institutions. It is concerned with expressions of female sexuality in its myriad forms - heterosexual, lesbian, and experiences of non-normative sexuality - as well as issues of maternal subjectivity, mental health and abuse and, throughout, the role of memory in enabling healing. The poems are at once erotic and deeply thought through, intelligent and tender.Of Memory and Furniture is described by Julienne van Loon as 'a deeply feminist project', and by David Brooks as 'bold, explicit and unapologetic'.
