Description

Just as the moonflower dares to stand and blossom, growing bright and free in the shadows of the night, may these gentle pages inspire you to bloom, bursting with poetry, in the most unexpected of moments.

From celebrated Australian artist Tess Guinery comes The Moonflower Monologues, her second book of beautifully designed poetry and prose. This collection is many things: an exploration of strength and femininity, an invitation to let things go wrong, a reminder that growth comes in many forms, and an acknowledgment that “some things can’t be written in sugar, only salt.” Some of the writings are extravagant, some are sparse, but all are infused with Guinery’s introspection, stillness, and kindness.

It feels like this collection has been written only for me.

Once I started reading the first few lines of the first page, I realised the book would mean more than I expected.

I just love the colourful pages and the subtle illustrations. It's so beautiful!

The writing:

It's empowering.

It's personal.

It's like your soulmate you have been searching for.

For readers of Rupi Kaur, this collection is a must read!

Another favourite!

Thank you, author and the publisher, for the advance reading copy.

This was a really beautiful anthology of poems. They really did touch me in ways only poetry is able to. I grew up with so many different things like poetry surrounding me so it only makes me appreciate it more. This is by one of the best poetry sets I’ve read in a long time and I absolutely loved it. Credit to the author for coming up with such a beautiful ensemble!

This is the kind of book that makes you want to hold it. Feel its paper. Sit with it. Underline. Bookmark. Come back to it on a rainy day with a cup of something warm.

In short, it's a lovely collection.

I was five pages in and I knew I was in love.

Guinery's poems were calming, inspiring, warm, comforting, loving. I will be reading her previous work and look out for anything else from her. Even thinking of gifting some copies to dear friends this holiday season!
