I Am A Red Dress: Incantation on a Grandmother, a Mother, and a Daughter by Anna Camilleri
A woman in a red dress conjures particular images, emotions, and stereotypes.
Eroticism. Lust. Passion.
Acclaimed writer and performer Anna Camilleri confronts these images and stereotypes in essays, stories, and poetry. Combining the political with the intensely personal, Camilleri's intimate writings are premised on a search for selfhood - strong, queer, female - within and outside of her bonds to other women in her family. Her voice is the sound the status quo makes as it crashes to the ground.
