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.

I listened to the audiobook and it sounded just like some good ass spoken word. Beautifully written and nuanced with lots of sensitive content that can’t be easy to write about beautifully. Love love loved it! This is the authentic, original type of poetry I hope to see more of. Some topics discussed are the effects of misogyny, genital mutilation, and racism. Definitely worth the read/listen. Big thanks to NetGalley and the publishers!
