    In Can You Hear Me Now?, former Liberal MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes changes the conversation, stripping the label of MP and revealing the woman of the before and after. The memoir fills in the blank spaces and reveals that Caesar-Chavannes has always been fearless, stoic and bold in her actions. At every stage in her life, she seemingly broke through, balancing the pressure of her family, culture, and her gender’s high expectations with steely precision. Yet, the book can be described as a transitory note to the next moment in her life.
