Author(s): Caroline Reid
The collection pulses with images of stars and stray dogs, highways with no horizon and mothers with fading memories. Reid's background as a performer and playwright shines in this collection of works that are as bold as they are tender, begging to be shouted, spoken, whispered many times over.'Psychedelic. Startling. Alive. This book takes you to places you never imagined you'd go, and some places you've already been, but thought you were alone when you were there. Caroline Reid is a fellow traveller in a chaotic world. She tells a woman's story, but it is the story of us all.'--Donna Ward, She I Dare Not Name: A Spinster's Meditations on Life.'Caroline Reid's writing illuminates the mundane and the ordinary as spectacular and powerful.' Rosslyn Prosser, University of AdelaideCAROLINE REID writes across genre and form. A regular spoken word performer and repeat finalist in the Australian Poetry Slam, her poetry and prose have also been widely published. Her play Prayer to an Iron God is published by Currency Press.
