Written By One Of Poetry S Most Original And Gifted Young Voices, This Collection Of Portraits And Experiments Embraces Both The Ordinary And The Surreal In Its Attempt To Make Sense Of An Ever Changing, Often Disorienting World Offering A Wry Approach To Love And Relationships, The Poems Are Woven With A Thread Of Romances Spanning The Author S Native South Africa And Her Adopted Home Of London At Times Playful And At Others Deeply Moving, The Verses Reflect On Everyday Forms, Imagining That The Geometry Of A Chair, For Example, Might Accurately Express Love Than The Traditional Lines Of A Sonnet With Familiar And Uncomplicated Language, These Delicately Crafted Poems Present A Truly Unique Perspective On The Mundane And Marvelous Aspects Of Life. I read this because it was on the long list for the Dylan Thomas Prize in 2010 Cute little poems, very realistic, reflecting on day to day situations Unfortunately, this also makes them a little unmemorable for me.
