An excerpt from the introduction:
‘Why did I decide to call this book ‘Fragments’? It’s because these essays are fragments that make up a part of a whole. They are broken glass, slips of thought and identity. Identity is a slippery thing—some things remain the same, but we are always changing with time and our experiences. Identity has fascinated me since I was a teenager—first, with all the things I collected around me as signifiers of ‘me’, and most recently with identity politics—what it means to be a woman, to be deaf, and in my generation, to live in a body. I am still only fragments, with pieces of myself appearing in different situations. In this way, writing is a way of looking for that core of self, of trying to recognise it—and yet learning that perhaps, I will never truly know. Identity is both something we can see, and something invisible.’
In the coming months Fragments may also be available through other distribution channels – watch this space and the blog for further updates. I may also be able to send people signed print copies through Paypal – again, keep an eye out for information on the blog and social media.
