individually captivating stories, Arathimos has succeeded in binding them
through the depth of human connection and portrayal of raw human pain, both mental and physical. A truly inspiring collection of work, each piece will
leave you with a better understanding of the hidden sufferings humans endure in their daily lives.

With a keen sense of language and power, Arathimos cuts away at her characters’ restraints, always seeking out the liberating insight. Apologia is a cleverly crafted, marvellously invigorating collection – tender, generous, and unafraid.
