New Book :: Binded
Binded by H Warren
Boreal Books, July 2023
In urgent vulnerability, Heather A Warren’s debut collection, Binded, discloses their reality of living nonbinary in the rural context of Alaska – “I sew myself together / again and again.” With breasts bound by compression, these poems explore the space that binds the body into itself, stuck in unrelenting forces of binary politics and violence. Each poem is a stitching and restitching of the self—an examination of trans-survival. This is a courageous collection—an anthem of Queer resilience and a reminder of the healing powers of community care.
