Moore explores a world of femininity and abuse in this brave collection. Travelling between childhood and adult life, she documents the honest reality of living with a woman’s body in a world that at times makes her miss the ‘easy misogyny’ of an office setting. Comparing her femininity to water Moore uncovers the flexibility that she is forced to perform throughout as she reflects on her previous experience in volatile situations: discussing and experiencing shame, victim-blaming, resentment and guilt. The collection gracefully flies through the experiences of relationships and how her trauma manifests as different animals inside her. All The Men I Never Married leaves a lasting impression of the realism behind Moore’s relationships.
