Can You Hear Me Now? is a powerful collection of poems confronting issues of childhood abuse, sexual assault, eating disorders and self-harm, in a sensitive yet harrowing way. With a striking and minimalistic style, these poems reflect on the nature of trauma, from thinking about abusers and people who allowed abuse to happen, to the vicious cycle of unhealthy coping mechanisms, to the hope of eventually being able to heal oneself.
As the title suggests, Can You Hear Me Now? directly addresses itself to abusers and enablers, giving a voice back to the survivors of abuse, with honesty and authenticity about what it is like both to suffer through abuse and to survive and heal. It is a reflective, emotional and confronting book which highlights issues which are too often ignored.

Isabella Ritchie is now the author of Can You Hear Me Now? which is pretty evident as you're reading her book now. When she isn't hauled up in her bedroom reading and writing Isabella spends her time travelling the world, eating pasta, using sarcasm as her natural defence and most importantly coddling her dog, who is by far her favourite member of her family.
