Description


What does it take to recover from trauma? Opening with a piece that juxtaposes the pleasures of masturbation with the terrors of a courtroom during a rape trial, You Can't Own the Fucking Stars is both a celebration of healing and a fearless testament to resilience in the face of suffering. In their customary engaging and accessible style, Clementine Morrigan offers a series of reflexive vignettes, poems and meditations, written over a period of five years, on their experiences recovering from trauma and addiction. You Can't Own the Fucking Stars marks the first time that all of these pieces, most originally published in now out of print zines, appear together. This is a book about sex, desire, queerness, bisexuality, pleasure, gender, addiction, sobriety, transformation, and healing from a lifetime of violence. Affirming both the hard work and the joy of recovery, You Can't Own the Fucking Stars celebrates the magic and power of trauma survivors.
