Summary
An outstanding collection of fresh, zesty poems about identity, sexuality, self-perception and relationships, with a futuristic narrative pulse. Full of zest and flair, Jessen's poems map constellations of desire, loss and longing. Riffing on the future (which isn't what it used to be), dating apps, despair, Bonnie Tyler, Taylor Swift and the lesbian bachelorette, they are set in interstellar queer utopias, maternity wards and single beds. Jessen's edgy, scintillating poems urge us all to be a 'little gay' and to celebrate existence in all its multiplicity. These are poems of sly surprises, radical vulnerability, dark-edged humour and vast originality that gently encourage readers to acknowledge past traumas while forging ahead to embrace the future. Following Jessen's award-winning verse novel, Gap, this collection confirms her as a major talent of her generation
