Stories of the Body

My focus/what I’m most interested in right now: the way Feminism speaks through stories of the body. The way thoughts, emotions, beliefs are transformed by what happens to the body. Stories of the body, stories of belief. Lidia Yuknavitch’s The Chronology of Water, Roxane Gay’s forthcoming Hunger, Pamela Erens’ Eleven Hours (which I requested as my Mother’s Day present).

    • Ah, yes! Thank you for reminding me of this brilliant essay! It was actually the first work of Lidia’s that I’d ever read, and you’re right, it ripped me apart, and also made me fall head over heels. Thank you for linking to it. I’m going to read it again right now.
