MC Angel Powerful Memoir: Moments of Significance

We’re excited to publish Shauna O’ Briain aka MC Angel’s powerful memoirs Moments of Significance (out 29th March 2018).

Moments of Significance is a non-linear narrative packed with poetry, prose, fragments of memories and mediations on life, philosophy and politics from an uncompromising voice. Told through Shauna’s personal experiences of growing up on an inner-city London council estate as a White Working Class Queer woman, Moments of Significance is an exploration of society and the political told through a very personal collage of experiences.

With accounts from Shauna’s childhood poverty to the devastating family revelation in Ireland; being bullied on her estate for being a Lesbian to finding Buddhism, coping with the death of her mother to piecing together an identity through hip hop, poetry and art, Shauna reinvents the way memoirs are written and through this collection of life moments reveals layers of herself to slowly build a unique relationship with the reader.

Moments of Significance is available to pre-order now. Everyone who pre-orders through the OWN IT! online shop will receive a personally signed copy from MC Angel before the 29th March

Tickets for the unique book launch event are also now on sale
