Publisher's Summary

A moving collection of poetry about navigating mid-life, full of humour and wit, from acclaimed novelist Farzana Doctor.

This debut poetry collection from acclaimed novelist Farzana Doctor is both an intimate deep dive and a humorous glance at the tumultuous decade of her forties. Through crisp and vivid language, Doctor explores mid-life breakups and dating, female genital cutting, imprints of racism and misogyny, and the oddness of sex and love, and urges us to take a second look at the ways in which human relationships are never what we expect them to be.

What the critics say

“These poems are clean, tight, wry, luscious, kvetchy and up-close-to-brown-skin.”—Sonnet L’Abbé, author of Sonnet’s Shakespeare

“In this collection, love, disappointment and possibility collide, at home and unhomed in spare, precise language.”—Larissa Lai, author of Iron Goddess of Mercy

“These poems travel across a range of experiences, but what pulls them together is the essential yearning for connection—in defiance of pain and grief, in spite of anger, fear, exclusion and sheer human blundering. The voices here are vulnerable, imperfect, but they are bolstered by their wry wit and an irrepressible desire to embrace life and love with all its complications.”—Adam Sol, author of How a Poem Moves
