Poetry. Drama. Women's Studies. Performance Studies. "Fiona Templeton takes the most basic and ubiquitous of forms, the journey story, and extracts its governing drives. Like a previous generation of radical feminist spinners of word-forms Templeton takes a stand for the primacy of language in shaping the world of experience and in constructing female subjectivity—over a lifetime. In her hands it achieves that most unlikely of qualities, delicacy and even humor."—Claire MacDonald, from the Preface
