A hybrid of memoir and essay from award-winning writer and critic Alison Croggon.

"I was born as part of a monstrous structure--the grotesque, hideous, ugly, ghastly, gruesome, horrible relations of power that constituted colonial Britain. A structure that shaped me, that shapes the very language that I speak and use and love. I am the daughter of an empire that declared itself the natural order of the world."

From award-winning writer and critic Alison Croggon, Monsters is a hybrid of memoir and essay that takes as its point of departure the painful breakdown of a relationship between two sisters.

It explores how our attitudes are shaped by the persisting myths that underpin colonialism and patriarchy, how the structures we are raised within splinter and distort the possibilities of our lives and the lives of others.

Monsters asks how we maintain the fictions that we create about ourselves, what we will sacrifice to maintain these fictions--and what we have to gain by confronting them.
