Just launched from London….


I am delighted that my essay ‘Stache appears in this beautiful new anthology “Keeping It Under Wraps: Bodies” edited by Tracy Hope, Alnaaze Nathoo and Louise Bryant.

This collection, the third one in the Keeping it Under Wraps series, was published in England, although all three editors live in Switzerland.

The editors write: With the constant stream of unrealistic and dangerous standards bombarding us from all sides, we can only draw one conclusion. Despite everything our bodies do for us, they are not as they should be, and many of us battle our entire lives chasing an ever elusive end goal. While we chase the impossible, we avoid sharing about our disabilities, chronic illnesses, or our perceived flaws or deformities because we feel alone, or we don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable.

These are real stories, told with humour, love, self-awareness and frankness, shared so we can all feel less alone in our skins. To show each other that we are all, in fact, more than good enough.
