Emilie Pine (Ireland) is a writer and lecturer in Modern Theatre at the University of Dublin. Her book Notes to Self is a collection of autobiographical essays about women and their bodies. If our bodies could tell their stories, what would they say? They would talk about blood, of the pain of dirty blood, of the blood that must never show itself. They would talk about the anguish of not being good enough, of always being silent, thinking that will improve things. This is a distressing yet wise and optimistic book. A treatise for what it means to live, an act of rebellion against a society that feels more comfortable silencing women.
