Description

Chandra Mayor's debut collection of poems takes the reader into realms of problematic desire, revised domesticity and psychoanalytic complexity through texts that span diverse poetic terrain, from the lyric to the narrative-based long poem. What links all the poems in this collection is the theme of boundaries between self and other, desire and body, "breath and reason". Mayor's poetic voice is at once confessional, playful and linguistically sophisticated. Here is a book that confirms the most exciting aspects of the poetic process. This is a stunning debut collection of poetry.
