The wise wound

£4.99

Product description

The Wise Wound is the first comprehensive look at the facts, myths, taboos, and prejudices surrounding one of the most basic natural processes of human life. Since its first publication in 1978, it had been recognised as an 'important and pioneering work', as Margaret Drabble says in her introduction, and has helped bring about a profound shift in attitudes about an aspect of human life that has been despised and denigrated for centuries.
