Love & Other Fairy Tales
‘Love and Other Fairy Tales’ explores love in all its forms: familial, sexual, romantic, narcissistic, anarchic, religious, faithful and unfaithful. These poems evoke the deep seams of love that run through the strata of living; how love crosses borders and seeps into humanity’s approach to the way we live with the natural and the man-made worlds, seen through the lenses of personal histories, myth, joy, gods, war, loss and longing.
