Peggy Munson's Pathogenesis Reviewed in Make/Shift
November 20, 2008
Make/shift magazine creates and documents contemporary feminist culture and action by publishing journalism, critical analysis, and visual and text art, while embracing the multiple and shifting identities of feminist communities. This issue's atricles focus on feminist bookstores and publishing.
On that wonderful note, Stacey May Fowels writes: "Pathogenesis is a meticulous and otherworldly record of bruises, blood, blisters, scabs, and scars. It is a book that treads fearlessly into the viciously real, and then escapes suddenly into the surreal and magical. These are poems obsessed with the borader implications of illness and exhaustion, both physical and emotional, all at once terrifying and liberating in thier visceral detail."
Peggy Munson is also the author of the book of poetry Origami Striptease and editor of the anthology Stricken: Voices from the Hidden Epidemic of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
