Intimacies, Received signals agency, as trauma isheld to the light and finally named.
In this astonishing second collection by Taneum Bambrick,violence hides in the glint of the carving knife—every intimacy a shadow, everymemory a maze to navigate. Set primarily in rural Southern Spain, Intimacies,Received moves through streets and fields, households and years, followinga survivor of sexual assault as she painstakingly reassembles a narrative ofself. A brilliant storyteller, Bambrick builds through palimpsest—layeringvivid imagery to recall embodiment and dissociation, illness and isolation,queer female sexuality amidst acts of misogyny—utilizing varied forms includingekphrasis, persona, and a lyric essay. Ultimately, Intimacies, Receivedsignals agency, as trauma is held to the light and finally named.
