Winner of the T.S. Eliot Prize 2021 Winner of the Polari Book Prize 2022 The female body is a political space. C+nto enters the private lives of women from the butch counterculture, telling the inside story of the protests they led in the '90s to reclaim their bodies as their own - their difficult balance between survival and self-expression. History, magic, rebellion, party and sermon vibrate through Joelle Taylor's cantos to uncover these underground communities forged by women.

C+nto is a love poem, a riot, a late night, and an honouring.
