Imperfect: How our bodies shape us

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr Lee Kofman discusses the myths surrounding our conception of physical perfection and what it’s like to live in a body that deviates from the norm.

She reveals the subtle ways we are all influenced by the bodies we inhabit, whether our differences are pronounced or noticeable only to ourselves. Imperfect challenges us all to consider how we exist in the world and how our bodies shape the people we become.

Dr Lee Kofman is an award winning Russian-born Israeli-Australian author of five books, editor of two anthologies, writing teacher and mentor based in Melbourne.

By the time she was eleven and living in the Soviet Union, Lee had undergone several major operations on both a defective heart and injuries sustained in a bus accident. Her body harbours a constellation of disfiguring scars that have shaped her sense of self and her view of the world.

Book sales and signings available.
