Veils, Halos & Shackles is reviewed in The Hindu by the insightful Maitreyi Karnoor. She says, “Thanks to its curatorial ingenuity, this book would be equally at home in a Women’s Studies class and on a bibliophile’s bookshelf.”
The amazing online journal of the arts, TheScreamOnline, has just published a major introduction to Veils, Halos & Shackles: International Poetry on the Oppression and Empowerment of Women
Poet Rashida Murphy writes about Veils, Halos & Shackles: This anthology is a sustained call for an intellectual and emotional uprising. It situates the reader at the heart of violence against women without ever seeming shrill or censorious.
This anthology needs to be in the curriculum of colleges and universities, law enforcement academies, and women’s shelters around the world. Wherever injustice, crimes of barbaric violence, or bestial cruelty occur, this anthology should be mandatory reading.
Donna Kaz, one of the 13 dozen very talented & accomplished contributors to Veils, Haloes & Shackles, has a new book that will be released this fall. Un/masked, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour by Donna Kaz aka Aphra Behn
