Ama Asantewa Diaka narrates her collection of poetry in this deeply personal audiobook. Diaka explores several topics relating to the female body, such as misogyny, motherhood, pain, and pleasure, along with her experiences as a Black Ghanaian woman. Her delicate voice delivers meditations on a female body broken down into pieces and chiseled to a version of herself others would mold her into. Deeply feminist, this collection recognizes a reality in which women are not in complete control of their bodies and are expected to accept critique without complaint. Diaka's gift for storytelling and visceral narration resonates with heartrending sadness, resentment, and an invitation to empathy. An audiobook that truly enhances the written word.
