TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES by RACHEL LEE
Truth or Consequences follows author Rachel Lee through a poetic and critical process of healing, empowerment, & magic—from the desert of Truth or Consequences, NM to the Midwestern metropolis of Columbus, OH—employing diverse and illuminating avenues of outlet: poetry, interview (w/ clinical herbalist Caty Crabb), illustration and photography, and rumination via personal essay (on shame, bodies, & growing up with an eating disorder.) All these collisions amplify and relinquish “society’s matrix of intersecting oppressions” and reveal the rebirth of a spirit transformed.
FROM THE INTRODUCTION
This is a zine about healing. The sort not understood through words, but in the whispering of songs remembered in dreams. Within these pages I split open my body, revealing ancestral cartographies of struggle, pain, resistance.
