Lucia Osborne-Crowley, author of I Choose Elena, writes about the secrets a body keeps, from gender identity, puberty, and menstruation to sexual pleasure; to pregnancy or its absence; and to darker secrets of abuse, invasion, or violation. The voices of women, trans and non-binary people around the world, and the author's own deeply moving testimony, cohere into an immersive polyphonic memoir that tells the story of the young person's body in 2021. In this boldly argued and widely researched work about reclaiming our bodies from shame, Osborne-Crowley establishes her credentials as a key intersectional feminist thinker of her generation.
