Memory Chose a Woman’s Body is a poetic memoir, one woman’s harrowing yet hopeful story of harm and healing. The poems, each powerful as stand-alone works, are a journey of self-discovery, an epic tale of finding one’s way and voice. Angela M Carter navigates uninviting terrain with the skill and grace of a veteran truth teller. Memory Chose a Woman’s Body is a ray of cleansing light directed at the dark corners of the human heart. It is an offering of sisterhood to survivors of all kinds.

ANGELA M CARTER has been a writer since the age of eight. What began as an escape from the events of her childhood became a way of life. Angela writes about subjects many people are uncomfortable talking about. Each of her poems is its own story, yet they all carry the same message: silence is not golden. Born and raised in a Virginia farming town with a population of fewer than 280 souls, Angela moved to England for several years only to find her memories followed her. She returned to Virginia with new-found confidence and a voice. She has been speaking with that voice ever since. Angela is a wife and mother and she believes that had it not been for poetry she would not be either of those things. She believes that poetry saved her life.
