About the book
A year after her breakup, Daan Borrel takes stock. Has she really healed? Has she found the kind of connection for which she left her other relationship? In search for answers she takes a month to examine her diary entries from the year before. On the good days of her menstruation cycle she seems to think so: then she feels independent, excited and wild. But on her PMS days not. Then her stomach is one ball of tension. She feels alienated from herself, lonely and longs furiously for a child from her best friend. Does this difference come from her changing hormone levels or from the stories we reproduce and circulate?
