"Judge Lily Hoang on (This Fucking Body is) Never Yours:
Linda Chavers’s (This Fucking Body is) Never Yours is a violation of the body on the skin of the sentence. It collapses relentless trauma into empowerment—because there is no hiding, only the revelation that anger can rush like lava and quicken into someone splendid."
Linda Chavers is a writer and teacher in Philadelphia. She teaches in the Intellectual Heritage and English departments at Temple University. Her work has been published in Gawker, Dame, The Offing and Elle.com. Her forthcoming chapbook, (This Fucking Body Is) Never Yours, will be released in February 2017 by Gazing Grain Press.
