Product description

Review

Melissa Lee-Houghton's highly original and innovative debut might be considered an epistolary tour-de-force, split into fifteen sections dealing with Others identified only by their forename. It is an extraordinary achievement and a must-read book for 2011. - Chris Hamilton-Emery I feel alive when I read Melissa's poetry. It is raw, anthropological and sassy. - David Caddy The most fascinating, beautiful poetry collection I have read in years ... so damn beautiful that it made my chest physically hurt. - Jen Campbell [Lee Houghton's] words are soaked in this tension between body and mind, between who we are supposed to be and the god-awful gorgeousness of who we really are. - The Hipster Book Club The fearlessness of the voice in these poems is exciting, as is the wealth of surreal imagery, which - like the images in a dream-world - make a strange, sideways sense. - Ink Sweat & Tears A kind of echolocation or sonar is employed here - often lengthy, the poems return again and again to the human body, building off its peculiar there-ness, its mixture of solidity and elasticity. - Jon Stone
