The Other Woman by Sophia Blackwell

The Other Woman by Sophia Blackwell

£9.99Price

The poems explore the histories that lovers bring with them and the migrations and crossings that have brought them to a new country of marriage, mortgages and finding a home. Moving in a dizzying dance from poems about girls in chain coffee shops and the sex lives of London foxes to hospital vaults, life-drawing classes, the altar and the confessional, these poems shine a fierce light into hidden corners of the world and the furthest reaches of the heart.

'Searing, sexy and profound. Sophia Blackwell is a stone genius poet.' Laurie Penny

 

'Some of Sophia Blackwell's poems read like Nico should be singing them to John Cale's viola, some as if Shakespeare's slut sister taught him all he knew, others are as new as the next dawn. Dirty, juicy, knowing, open - works for me.' Stella Duffy

 

'As soon as I finished this raw, addictive, affectionate poetry collection, I went back to the start and read it all again.' Kirsty Logan on The Fire Eater's Lover
