Laurie Penny - Unspeakable Things (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781408824740
Shortlisted for The Green Carnation Prize 2014.
'This is not a fairytale. This is a story about how sex and money and power police our dreams.'
Clear-eyed, witty and irreverent, Laurie Penny is as ruthless in her dissection of modern feminism and class politics as she is in discussing her own experiences in journalism, activism and underground culture.
This is a book about poverty and prejudice, online dating and eating disorders, riots in the streets and lies on the television.
The backlash is on against sexual freedom for men and women and social justice - and feminism needs to get braver. Penny speaks for a new feminism that takes no prisoners, a feminism that is about justice and equality, but also about freedom for all.
It's about the freedom to be who we are, to love who we choose, to invent new gender roles, and to speak out fiercely against those who would deny us those rights.
It is a book that gives the silenced a voice - a voice that speaks of unspeakable things.

" . . . this book is funny and cheeky ("You can plan a lot of damage from a kitchen, it's where the knives are kept") and refreshingly generous." - The Guardian.
"As Penny demonstrates, in a great, defining chapter on the internet, we are dealing with a new world order . This book is funny and cheeky . and refreshingly generous." - The Observer.
"A raw, bright, urgent voice. Like Caitlin Moran, another compulsive and essentially self-taught writer, she went to places others didn't and brought back things they had missed. Dazzling. Penny writes with intimacy and insight that smack of real knowledge." - The Guardian.
"Laurie Penny can certainly coin a phrase . . . she writes well, inclusively and cogently with passion. Let's hear it for "young, lady writers" behaving badly." - The Herald.
"Unflinching . . . In Unspeakable Things, Laurie Penny reclaims the word insolent, turning it into a compliment and a call to arms." - TLS.
