              Her Say: Survivors of Domestic Abuse Tell Their Own Stories (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Clark, Jackie

              In 2012, Jackie Clark launched The Aunties, a grassroots charity helping women to rebuild their lives after a period of trauma. She quit her job, turning her back on her comfortable life, to focus on The Aunties full-time, becoming Aunty in Charge and assisting hundreds of women ...with material needs and emotional support. Jackie has long dreamed of a publication that gives these women a voice. This powerful new book features the stories of a number of very different New Zealand women, told their way. The collected stories chart their narrators' lives and personal histories, through the lens of having lived with - and escaped - an abusive partner. Her Say is spoken from the heart, uncompromising but offering hope, redemption, personal triumph. It's a book for all women, showing how owning our stories gives us the power to write daring new endings. It will challenge, illuminate, and empower readers - not to mention the storytellers themselves.

              Aphoria: Poems

              Aphoria: Poems (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Clark, Jackie

              Poetry. Few poets have the ability to record the gossamer strands of their own cognitions as Jackie Clark does. The poems in APHORIA are miraculous in the way they map a topology of quotidian thought in unassuming yet radiant language. APHORIA is something like a blueprint for th...e invisible architecture of the human soul. Not so much the soul that belongs to Jackie Clark, but the one that belongs to and connects all of us. --Ben Mirov APHORIA constellates fragments of memory, cityscape, images, & imaginings into serial poems both contemplative & seductive. It draws the reader into an embrace. Through this, the book develops an epistemology of gravity, of holding, countered by the inevitable failure to accurately remember being held. These hushed & biting lyrics are centripetal, circling the arcane core of a person's experience. --Mathias Svalina Jackie Clark's poetics is a poetics of spying on the prismatic philosophical underpinnings of fate. We live and love in her hopes and surrenders. --Jenny Boully
