Description

A moving collection of poetry about navigating mid-life, full of humour and wit, from acclaimed novelist Farzana Doctor

This debut poetry collection from acclaimed novelist Farzana Doctor is both an intimate deep dive and a humorous glance at the tumultuous decade of her forties. Through crisp and vivid language, Doctor explores mid-life breakups and dating, female genital cutting, imprints of racism and misogyny, and the oddness of sex and love, and urges us to take a second look at the ways in which human relationships are never what we expect them to be.

About the Author

Editorial Reviews

In this collection, love, disappointment and possibility collide, at home and unhomed in spare, precise language."


"These poems are clean, tight, wry, luscious, kvetchy and up-close-to-brown-skin."

— Sonnet L'Abbe
