Books & Other Writing

Coming May 21, from House of Anansi. "With wit and warmth, these personal essays move from a first bra to first hot flashes to consider the lessons we learn through media and culture–and from each other–about bodies, sexuality, gender roles, and what we should want in life. Christina Myers explores the ways that beauty standards and cultural expectations around femininity have shaped our identities and how we might shed those going forward; the power of friendships and the value of having other women to learn from; the anxiety of moving through motherhood into menopause in a time of global environmental crisis and political upheaval; and the uncertainty of how this stage of life should unfold, as old systems shift and crumble ... these essays remind us there are others on this trail with us, just behind or just ahead, out of sight. We are not alone."

A postcard perfect debut." -Ali Bryan, author of The Figgs and a finalist for the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour
