    Dress Rehearsals
    <b>A memoir made of poetry, <i>Dress Rehearsals </i>documents a decade of performing womanhood in a non-binary body.</b><br/><br/><b>'Unlike anything else you'll ever read. It's an ode to womanhood, performative feminism and deeply confessional. Godfrey has created a deeply intimate letter to their experience of the everyday through an autobiography of sultry poetry.' <i>InStyle Australia</i></b><br/><br/><i>My femininity is not a survival instinct, it is a song.</i><br/><br/>In their brilliant new poetry collection, Madison Godfrey documents a decade of performing womanhood, from teenage fangirl to tender femme. Godfrey's poems approach the autobiographical body as a site of the everyday and the surreal: experiencing first crushes, mosh pits, sharpened nails, gender euphoria, and the complicated colours of desire and memory.<br/><br/>Darkly witty and deeply confessional, <i>Dress Rehearsals</i> is a love story to the queer self. This coming-of-age memoir asks, what does it mean to wear femininity into the world, when it constitutes both a bullseye and a ballgown?<br/><br/>'I inhaled this book.' Dylin Hardcastle, author of <i>Below Deck</i><br/><br/>'Madison Godfrey wields words with exquisite precision and <i>Dress Rehearsals</i> is as taut, seductive and deadly as a femme fatale herself. These are poems to impale yourself on. A work of distilled genius.' Yves Rees, author of <i>All About Yves</i>
