Kissing the Hag is a wonderfully intelligent, earthy, cosmic diary of the feminine life. I love the way it walks the edge between personal and collective, physical and poetic, highly ethical and thick in the uncertainties. While many writers fall into spiritualizing and intellectualizing the feminine, this life-soaked book remains close to the fluids of body and soul, even as it gives birth to one trusted insight after another. It's an obvious gift-book for women going through a life passage, but it could also be important for men, who are closer to the mysteries presented here than they might wish to be. --Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and A Life at Work
Kissing the Hag tracks the initiatory phases of womanhood through the titles that women get cat-called throughout time. Here the raw reality of the Dark Goddess speaks her honest truth, going beyond the bad-mouthing and the sweet-talking fantasies surrounding women, to the compassionate heart of female identity. --Caitlin Matthews, author of Sophia, Goddess of Wisdom and In Search of Woman's Passionate Soul
I will one day give my daughter Kissing the Hag and hope she has less need of it than I do ... Kissing the Hag demands your full attention, it calls passionately to something deep inside, something that will not be denied. The book is both devastating and life affirming and there is no doubt in my mind that it will change the life of every person brave enough to read it. Embrace your hag or she will bite you ... --Shannon Smy, free spirit and singer/songwriter in award-winning protest band, Seize the Day

I was a little concerned about reading this as I had tried to read Emma's other book Druid Priestess and ended up shelving it as I couldn't cope with her referring to herself as... Read morePublished on 12 Dec. 2013 by Jax
