The thoughts your brain is capable of havingeven while you’re lying there, bleeding on the carpet?...’ The Soft of Her Palm is a devastating exploration of domesticviolence, telling the story of Phil and Sarah’s troubled andcomplex relationship. It begins in the present day, momentsafter Sarah has crashed her car outside Phil’s house – byaccident or on purpose? As we return to the past and thehorrifying story unfolds, our allegiances shift as the truthis slowly revealed. Jumping from moments of sheer joy tovolcanic ferocity and underscored with a vein of sharp, brutalhumour, the shadow of violence creeps insidiously across thelandscape of Chris Dunkley’s painfully honest new play.

Critical literacy investigates how forms of knowledge, and the power they bring, are created in language and taken up by those who use texts. It asks how language might be put to different, more equitable uses, and how texts might be recreated in a way that would tell a different story. This book is a carefully documented and critically analysed example of the growing emphasis on critical literacy in syllabuses, government reports and the like. It: * bridges the gap between academics' theorizing and teachers' work * describes how secondary teachers have planned and implemented critical literacy curricula on a range of topics, from Shakespeare to the workplace * listens to teachers reflecting on their teaching and analyses classroom talk * extrapolates from present practice to a future critical literacy in a digitised, hypermedia world. Teachers and students of education, critical literacy advocates and theorists of literacy and schooling can learn much more from this book, which shows how critical literacy teachers, and their students are contributing to the ongoing reinvention of English education as critical literacy.
