Praise For Unravelings

-Listed as a NewPages "New and Noteworthy" title (July 2017)

-"[Unravelings] gets at the texture of memory, the jagged edges, the cloudy absences, the unseen obstacles. By examining what is bent about her experience, Cheshire launches an attack on attempts to "set the record straight." Its not a long book, but half way through I had to put it down to catch my breath, to feel the rise and fall of my chest and remember the times that I have struggled to make sense out of memory, or have squirmed under the knowledge of what authority figures might do when armed with my memories. Maybe that's it - this is a book about when punitive power tries to turn our stories into weapons." -John Bergen
