CUNTRY

Cuntry
  • Title: Cuntry
  • Authors: Kristin Sanders
  • Published Date: 2017-05-15
  • Description: Poetry. "CUNTRY is an elegant excavation of Sanders's twinned obsession with pornography and country music. Effortlessly slipping between poetry, memoir, and music criticism, Sanders disrobes the country song of the 90's and uses it as a lens to expose our culture's sanitized images of femininity. CUNTRY not only skewers the objectifying nature of pop culture but also explores the pleasures of objectification, of 'lingering in the gaze.' It is a story about how the very desires that make us also undo us. Which is to say, it is a story about failure. Also: singing. The necessity of talking back to the song, the book, or the film because, as Sanders reminds us, 'the desire of the cunt is always left out except where I write it in.'"--Elizabeth Hall
