Love, loss, losing your mind... Perceptive and affecting, intimate and accessible, Anna Percy's first full poetry collection is a passionate declaration featuring many of her prize and slam winning poems (and rummaging armadillos).
Born and raised in Norwich, Anna Percy gained her MA in Creative Writing from the University of Manchester in 2009. A workshop facilitator and literary events organiser, she is co-founder and co-host of Stirred, Manchester's influential pro-feminist poetry night.
"An assured and potent exploration in blue of the littoral zones between city and country, love and leaving; the places where light and shadow lay bruised in each others arms" - Adam Horovitz, poet
"Adventurous and truthful in equal measure and by turns tender, angry, grief-stricken and joyful, sometimes within the turn of a line. These poems will move you and make you think." - Steven Waling, poet & reviewer
"A savage lyricality that lifts the beauty of brokenness and the brokenness of beauty to a transcendence of glorious primary colours" - Dan Holloway, Eight Cuts Gallery
"Full of warmth and insight and connection. This poet sings a deep sexy note, you feel it in your chest, where the heart lives." - John G. Hall, poet
