A collection of poems by Karen Lazar, a college lecturer in English and Professional Literacy. A stroke survivor, she is the author of the poetry collection, hemispheres, inside a stroke (2011), and lives in Johannesburg.

"This is an urgent, honest, indelible book. Karen Lazar writes straight from the mysterious inner workings of the body, her language nosing its way into the very places where language usually fails. Always, she is writing her way back to life, back to living again - and what she achieves for herself, she achieves for her reader too. We are left feeling moved and gratified, the humanity that runs through each of us restored to its wonder once again." Craig Higginson, author of The Dream House and The Book of Gifts
