Isolation and community. Restrictions and freedom.
The near future is a militarised state, a fractured continent, and a world in which fascism is resurging following pandemics and climate devastation.
Against this grim backdrop, the characters of Dignity form a deeply diverse resistance movement that brings connection, strength and hope to those who need it most.
Survival is an act of resistance.
Otter’s novels can be read as a trilogy, in any order, or as stand-alone stories.
“Dignity is at once a page-turning adventure and also a tender love story about a version of revolution that will be familiar to anyone who knows what it means to survive against the odds.” Raechel Anne Jolie, Rust Belt Femme.
“This is a magical, poetic, and important book.” Ennis Rook Bashe, Lesfic Bard Award Winner
“I loved Otter’s previous two books and am glad to see the third is a devastatingly beautiful masterpiece. No other writer speaks to and for our times as passionately as she does.” Dolly Sen, Disability Arts Online
“Lieffe creates a stunning novel in a rich setting that is wonderful whether we are seeking literary catharsis or comfort.”
Cassandra Snow, Queering the Tarot and Queering Your Craft: Witchcraft From the Margins.
