Collection of poetry Very tumblr-esque Mailing add $1 Price fixed No meet ups Best whispered aloud to a backdrop of Bon Iver or the strains of Scriabin’s piano sonatas, The Confusion of Happiness questions the promises of love against a life of art. In this first collection, the poet walks herself around a gallery of texts, taking notes on those who have come before her. The language of her transcriptions spills secrets of girlhood and distant loves. Almost a poetic Künstlerroman, the 45 poems are ordered to reflect a journey of affections and musical understanding. They shuffle like crossfaded tracks through changing cities, characters and combinations of sound. These lines blur between representation and truth. The reader is left to trace the shape of a lyric body in the liminal space between silence and music. You'd probably like this if you liked 'objects of affections' - paperback with cover flap: 64 pages - product dimensions: 125 x 210 mm
