Wait a Minute, I Have to Take Off My Bra is an anthology celebrating the most female of body parts, the breasts. From light-hearted memories of the first buds of puberty to heart wrenching accounts of breast cancer, these stories and poems run the gamut of experiences and emotions. A portion of all profits will be donated to the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.
JM gives an overview of the book:
Throughout a woman's life, we are defined by our breasts: covering them, uncovering them, buying the right bra, a girl's first bra, when the breast fairy will visit, men admiring them, women being jealous or scornful of them, and what happens if breast cancer takes them away. My stories are about a first bra and nipples that point up.
Although chronologically middle-aged, I still feel like a youth except on those mornings when time, temperature and joints more used to sitting and typing than running, walking or just moving remind me I have been around a while; then I'm about 432.
