about

Whether we love it or hate it, escape to it or from it, women talk about the one place that both entraps and empowers them ? the kitchen. In this feminist anthology of women's poetry, prose, interviews and oral transcriptions, talk from the kitchen goes public. Here women tell the whole story, reclaiming and revaluing this significant part of their lives.

With contributions from Alice Munro, Margaret Atwood, PK Page, Daphne Marlatt, Gabrielle Roy, Margaret Laurence, Lee Maracle, Carol Shields, Joy Kogawa, Annharte, Kristjana Gunnars, Laurie Sarkadi, Dorothy Livesay, Emily Carr, Susan Musgrave and many many more

From Our Editors

A kitchen can be a warm and inviting place, a natural gathering spot for family and friends. Or, it can be a symbolic jail, representing women's confinement to a single room while others are elsewhere. Kitchen Talk is a feminist anthology of poetry, fiction, essays and interviews that explore the trivialization of 'women's work'. Featuring work by Margaret Atwood, Joy Kogawa, Margaret Laurence, Dorothy Livesay, Gabrielle Roy, Audrey Thomas and Aritha van Herk, this is an important and thought-provoking volume in feminist philosophy.
