This poetry collection is bold, caustic expression of a sexually repressed Greek Cypriot girl living in Australia. Deep into the poetry’s boldness, it speaks the restrictive nature of conservative Greek Cypriot societies in Australia towards women and a woman’s struggle to free herself. But this goes a step farther, by showing the explosive expression of a woman who dares to brake herself from the chains of socially imposed limitations and challenge taboos. It shows the contradicting nature between expectations of a conservatist society and what a woman truly seeks to reach happiness and self-realization.
