"This is such seriously good, illuminating, confronting, wry and revelatory writing." - Jolisa Gracewood on Tze Ming Mok's essay.
"One of the most powerful personal/political creative essays I've read in such a long time - maybe ever." Karlo Mila on Tulia Thompson's essay.
Selected for their wit and style, five critically-acclaimed New Zealand essayists were given carte blanche for this collection; they all chose to write on subjects usually discussed only in private.
Blending compelling personal stories with insights into feminism, politics, family and capitalism, they offer wry humour, lively prose and deeply empathetic understanding – all within a covetable, high-quality hard-cover book splashed with colour.
Superb writing, as seen at The SpinoffThe Pantograph Punchand (paywalled) NZ Herald
To endure this pain was to be a woman of my family... (Courtney Sina Meredith)
How suboptimal was this little creature in a onesie with a ladybird on the front?... (Ruth Larsen)
I want to examine the current capitalist movement in Aotearoa... (Tulia Thompson)
Self-care in times of lesbian bed-death... (Tui Gordon)
"Why do you keep saying you're Chinese" our mutual friend said to me once, visibly irritated, "You're not Chinese."... (Tze Ming Mok)
"This is a book of versatility. It is small, light, easily carried with you wherever you go...I wholeheartedly recommend this approach. My personal copy is stained with nail polish, olive oil and ink. I treated Volcanoes like an old childhood friend, visiting my city for the summer, whom I was eager to impress...We went on dinner dates, to the botanic gardens, multiple bus and Uber rides. We shared baths and beds. I spread the word, online and by word of mouth: this is a Good Book." Veronica Maughan in Pantograph Punch.
