Editorial Reviews


“With echoes of Nancy Mairs and Audre Lorde, Shahd Alshammari’s sensuous prose weaves together a bold disability narrative with poignant stories that explore identity, loss and love, calling us to reimagine life beyond the boundaries of ‘normality’.” Dr. Stella Bolaki, author of "Illness as Many Narratives: Arts, Medicine and Culture" (Edinburgh University Press, 2016).

"This book is an intimate architecture of disabilities – physical, cultural, religious, and psychological – that emerges from a desire for a truthful expression of life in a society that cannot abide the complexities of life and desire. Shahd Al Shammari’s hybrid book, a series of thwarted narratives of despair, love, longing and corruption, goes a long way to casting light – and direction – on the Kuwait situation.” Keith Jardim, author of "Near Open Water" (Peepal Tree Press Ltd., 2011).

"Notes on the Flesh" is relatable to readers across the globe for whom the struggle between our desire to love and our fear of difference is a universal reality. Dr Diya Abdo, Associate Professor of English, Guilford College
