My Body Keeps Your Secrets

Lucia Osborne-Crowley

£12.99

In her first full-length book, Lucia Osborne-Crowley, author of the acclaimed Mood Indigo essay I Choose Elena, writes about the secrets a body keeps, from gender identity, puberty, and menstruation to sexual pleasure; to pregnancy or its absence; and to darker secrets of abuse, invasion, or violation. Through the voices of women, trans and non-binary people around the world, and her own deeply moving testimony, My Body Keeps Your Secrets tells the story of the young person’s body in 2021, in a daring and immersive literary form that the author describes as a “non-fiction novel”. Osborne-Crowley establishes her credentials as a key intersectional feminist thinker of a new generation with this widely researched and boldly argued work about reclaiming our bodies from shame.
