You may recall the post by guest blogger Sophie Mayer introducing Catechism: Poems for Pussy Riot, a collection of poems and artwork contributed in support of the incarcerated members of Pussy Riot and published by English PEN. The F Word is pleased to publish a review of this collection by Fran Allfrey, who finds it a “inspirational, angry, positive, passionate and fitting tribute”, full of work which will “raise questions, expose problems and reveal a community which spirals far beyond the walls of any penitentiary”.
