small white monkeys

From the publisher:

small white monkeys is a fragmented essay, including poems and images, on self-expression, self-help and shame. Beginning with the image of the small white monkeys, the text examines the author's relationship with shame through a series of short studies on, amongst other things, cats as phobic objects, hair as a metonym for shame in poetry and fiction, and changing perceptions of sexual violence.

Made through research into Glasgow Women's Library's Archive Collections and Lending Library, small white monkeys incorporates material from the library's archives and the work of female creators past and present, including Anna Mendelssohn, Jean Rhys, Selima Hill, Adrian Piper, June Jordan, Denise Riley, Julia Kristeva, Carolee Schneemann, Vahni Capildeo, Veronica Forrest-Thomson and Kim Hyesoon.
