Of Memory and Furniture is described by Julienne van Loon as ‘a deeply feminist project’, and by David Brooks as ‘bold, explicit and unapologetic’. This collection in four parts explores experiences of female embodiment, sexuality, and relationships with family, lovers and institutions. It is concerned with expressions of female sexuality in its myriad forms – heterosexual, lesbian, and experiences of non-normative sexuality – as well as issues of maternal subjectivity, mental health and abuse and, throughout, the role of memory in enabling healing. The poems are at once erotic and deeply thought through, intelligent and tender.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘Erotic feminist sensitive and skilled Bateman is a poet who wants and deserves to be widely read.’ Saturday Age

‘There’s a brutality and hard edge to many of the poems while others are tender and poignant.’ Fremantle Herald

Of Memory And Furniture pushes boundaries and tackles taboos Westerly
