All of Me: Stories of Love, Anger, and the Female Body is not your typical feminist anthology, mostly because it busts open binaries, gender and otherwise, in brave and fierce ways. I have been thinking about the importance of feminism with regards to intimacy—in relation to ourselves, to our stories, to our work, to each other, and to the planet. This wide-ranging collection of stories and interviews is deeply intimate in all of these ways. All of Me brings you on a journey through people’s lives, connecting you to each story, whether the writers and storytellers are sharing personal narratives or ideas, they tell them in intimate, courageous, and beautiful ways. Bravo to Dani Burlison for creating the space for all these diverse and inclusive stories to be shared. By the way, reading this book will crack you open towards feeling more compassion and love. Read it. Read it out loud. Buy it for everyone you know. And then read it again.”
—carla bergman, coauthor, Joyful Militancy: Thriving Resistance in Toxic Times

“Visceral, raw, and personal, All of Me is the barbaric yawp of womanhood unrestrained. Ranging from the confessional to the call to action, this collection of deeply personal writings tears back the veil of womanhood to show the glorious and gritty guts of it all. Unfiltered, unadulterated, open; witness the wounds and the wisdom of what it means to be a woman today.”
—Lasara Firefox Allen, author of Jailbreaking the Goddess: A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality

“These stories of resilience center the voices and experiences often overlooked and unheard. All of Me: Stories of Love, Anger, and the Female Body is just what is needed to balance the torrents of racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and violence filling our everyday newsfeeds.”
—Victoria Law, author of Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women

All of Me celebrates rage as a way to reject a culture that isolates women from one another. Such a necessary read!”
—Soraya Chemaly, author of Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women’s Anger

“An incredible array of voices gather together in this tightly-packed, raucous anthology. If ever you felt the need to focus feelings of deep anger, All of Me serves as an almost step-by-step manual of rage.”
—Inga Muscio, author of Cunt: A Declaration of Independence and Rose: Love in Violent Times
