Alicia Bailey: "The poem by Patricia Beers describes the almost unbearable results of a lifetime of keeping silent. Please handle carefully, could cause injury or pain. The artist's photographs allude to bondage and repression. Object and text initially hidden by the photographs are revealed as the reader interacts with this book."
