Dona Juanita is pleasure's hunting ground. It stalks through Dona, seeking fleshly rewards and proof of love within lust. Werthergirl is suffering's bunker. It hoards the underlying trauma until the room is overflowing and suffocating. These two beings exist within one body, living through oppressive systems designed to stymie pure emotion, while seeking a settlement of freedom and comfort.
Gabrielle Everall's intense verse novella is a compelling dive through the experiences of sexuality and sexualised trauma that delves beyond the initial experiences and into the agony of recovery.
