Inhaltsangabe: The poems in this book deal in familiar emotions - love, grief, rage and loneliness. Some of the poems are based in the territory of home and childhood, others move into that unnerving space where the safe and polite world plunges over a ledge - into anarchic revisions of what is possible and acceptable. They treat myths and fairy stories, or even paintings, not as fictions but as part of our continuing experience.
"This is a rich, disturbing and vibrant collection of poems...confident, mature and visionary, creating an artistic identity which a great many novelists could only dream of" (Michael Bracewell Guardian)
"Whether she is 'in search of the edge' or dancing 'out over the edge' Feaver brings areas of female sexuality and its taboos to the public imagination of women and men with brilliance, sensitivity and perfect control" (Deryn Rees Jones London Magazine)
"Vicki Feaver's poems resonate with truth and raw emotion... Whether she is writing about ironing, childhood, periods or love, her wry humour and sensuous style make familiar subject matter seem fresh and new" (Kate Figes, Cosmopolitan)
