When the MGM Grand in Las Vegas burned in one of the worst hotel fires in U.S. history, 20-year-old performer Katherine Durack was suddenly alone, out of work, and desperate to find a new career. Twenty-five years later, she had earned a PhD, received national recognition for her scholarly work, and settled into a university teaching position. But then her career unexpectedly collapsed, and Durack found herself embarking on a new journey of exploration and connection.Comprised of fifteen essays written with wit and wisdom, Unmentionables shares Durack's deeply personal exploration of the notion that the body is a road to the soul. Each essay represents a touchstone of the body, helping to map the connections that root spirit to flesh and silence to speech and healing. Durack delves into key points of her life to illustrate how women need not fear embracing change in both their physical and spiritual beings. From her stint as a singer in Las Vegas to her career as a college educator, Durack offers an intimate look at how she faced the unique challenges of finding her true voice within each situation. Required reading for every woman of every age, Unmentionables brilliantly explores our essential need to embrace the entirety of our experiences in order to heal and be whole.
