Unlike many anthologies, this collection is hard to put down. Reading the work of these scholar-artists cover to cover brings one into a conversation that is vital and necessary and deeply rewarding.
This book asks a lot of essential questions. It asks that we reflect on narratives written on and in bodies, that we challenge narratives of cultural, historical and political identification and it questions how narratives of creativity might appropriate, subvert and re-write those stories.
