Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Judith Arcana, a reproductive rights activist formerly involved in Chicago's pre-Rose v. Wade underground abortion service, imbues her poetry, fiction and essays with the same ferocity, humor and passion that informs her activism. "It's a passionate rush of language, hope in a hard time, truth in the middle of lies. This poetry sparks and burns with the hidden language and stories of women"-Minnie Bruce Pratt.

Review:

"Arcana has written poems about a subject so complex and difficult that I could not imagine them being written…she tackles the whole range of situations and emotions….She’s articulated the impossible and…given us a way to think about what couldn’t have been thought." Toi Derricotte

Review:

"Lyric, varied, funny, moving, full of lively stories and authentic voices….this book will change the definition of political poetry." Annie Finch

Review:

"Judith Arcana's...words speak the clear, bloody truth of women's fight for reproductive freedom...taking readers...on a journey through...the unspoken and the unspeakable...the real and the inevitable...tell[ing] the real story about mothering, not the Hallmark version.... Jill Scott (review in Journal of the Association for Research on Mothering)

Review:

"This inspired collection…covers the gamut of reproductive issues from mothering to miscarriages and women’s bodies to babies…delivered by a true poet." Conscience, the magazine of Catholics for Choice

Review:

"The title poem of this book should be made into a poster and pinned up on the wall in every clinic in the United States." Peter Bours, MD
