Other Women's Kitchens
Other Women's Kitchens is Alison Binney's debut pamphlet of poems and introduces us to a gifted new voice who writes with flair and feeling about coming out and coming of age as a gay woman in 21st century Britain. Winner of the Mslexia pamphlet prize for poetry, the collection explores the challenges of discovering and owning a lesbian identity and the joy of finding both love and increased confidence in that identity as an adult. An adroit admixture of the heart-wrenching and the humorous, the book features shaped and 'found' pieces, traditional narrative and and compact prose poems. Beautifully entertaining, pointedly political and often very funny, Other Women's Kitchens is essential reading.
'These smart, deft poems speak of an identity no longer hidden but now claimed, written down, understood. Navigating early fervour and memories of shame through to the place of being truly loved, Binney weaves together an extraordinary wit with stirring affection. The result is a precious clutch of poems, proving her undeniable talent.' - Rebecca Goss
