Brute: Poems Cover Image
$16.00
ISBN: 9781555978358
Availability: On our shelves now at one or more of our stores
Published: Graywolf Press - April 2nd, 2019

How can the end of a relationship feel like anything but a gaping wound? Brute will show you how. Visceral, angry, and honest. This is a journey to the heart of loss and back out again; stronger, fiercer. Highly propulsive, these poems tell a story. But much more than recalling a simple breakup, Emily Skaja explores gender and sexuality, and the strength and wildness in femininity and womanhood. Her poems will slice you open to your very soul and then stitch you back together, and you will thank her for it.

A comprehensive starter about consent - which should always be an enthusiastic YES. This graphic novel features a group of teens discussing what they think consent means after learning a classmate was a victim of sexual assault. They ultimately affirm that all relationships should make both participants feel confident, healthy, and fulfilled. A must-read. For everyone. Full stop.
