Adventures in Kate Bush and Theory
will present Kate Bush as you have never seen her before. Here is the polymorphously perverse Kate, the witchy Kate, the queer Kate; the Kate who moves beyond the mime.

Through in-depth readings of the often critically neglected works of Bush's career (The Kick Inside, Lionheart, The Dreaming, The Red Shoes and her film The Line, the Cross and the Curve), Withers guides the reader through the complexity of Bush's art and how it transformed popular culture.

Sistershow Revisited uses the antics of Bristol-based theatre group Sistershow to tell the history of feminism in Bristol from 1973-1975.

The book contains photographs, archival material, original articles and commentary. 

'Withers re-creates in as much detail as possible what survives of the texts and scenarios of each Sistershow, along with the working process that created it and the conflicts over class, parenting responsibilities or the lack of them, organisational methods, strong personalities that affected it, a familiar litany. As Withers writes, this 'only underlines the group's achievements more'. This is an inspiring and important account of vital era,' Susan Croft.
