Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses (Paperback) by Claire Dederer
about this item
Claire Dederer is a critic and journalist who has written for Salon, Vogue, and the New York Times among other publications, and with POSER has produced her long-form non-fiction debut. Dederer captures in witty detail her ten-year journey through learning the various yoga asanas, during which she also comes to terms with motherhood, marriage, her parents' divorce, and her place in a generation that sometimes values "goodness" and political correctness over spontaneity and joy. Dederer takes an unsentimental approach to the practice of yoga that will resonate with anyone who has ever taken a class and felt both challenged and slightly out-of-place among the "true believers."
