This selection, chosen by guest curator and Sundress intern Victoria Carrubba, is an excerpt from Malnourished: A Memoir of Sisterhood and Hunger by Cinthia Ritchia, released by Raised Voice Press in 2020.
Excerpt: The West
What do you do, what do you say when someone tells you such things? You bury your nails so deep in your thighs that you bleed. You listen and afterward, you hang up the phone slowly, the receiver banging the desk. You pray. You cry. You hate yourself for it but still you do it. You slowly, ever so slowly, you turn away.
