Product description

About the Author

NJ Hynes: 'I played with words as soon as I could speak, and was banned from my sisters' room for telling stories when they wanted to sleep. My early years were spent in one of the few racially mixed neighbourhoods in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I moved to the UK in 1995, to begin research on African artists living and working in London, and have lived and worked in London ever since. I returned to poetry in the aftermath of 9/11, and pursued it through Arvon courses, the Poetry School in London and eventually an MA in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths in 2010. I enjoy the challenge of formal constraints -- it's like swimming in a small, deep rock pool, or etching a world on an egg shell. The Department of Emotional Projections is both the collection title and a sonnet sequence that grew very slowly; at times, it felt like painting a series of miniatures, balancing washes of colour with details achieved by a fine camel's hair brush.'
