What would it be like to live in a marriage where you share your life, your family, your husband – your bedroom – with another woman?

Two wives, one husband, one relationship – and a tangled web of love and secrets: Sisterwives is a dramatic story about a poygamous marriage set in an isolated religious community.

H. D. and the image, published by Manchester University Press

H.D and the image considers how H. D.’s sense of the visual image was shaped by her engagement with film and spiritualism. It is the only book-length study to explore how H.D.s involvement with the moving image – from her appearance in avant-garde films, to her experience of film editing and her writing on cinema – informs her poetry and prose. Providing an analysis of as yet unpublished primary sources, H.D. and the image also gives an accessible and lucid introduction to the modernist context of H.D.’s work.
