Lauren Garland - Darling
Release date: 17th October, 2020
In Lauren Garland's exceptional debut Darling we witness the way visual art, storytelling and travel can be used as a window to the world. Taking its stylistic cues from the New York School, each poem is digressive, tactile and full of rich allusion and symbolism. There are poems that explore what it means to fully inhabit a moment or a life, poems that question how one constructs the self, and poems guided by the history of exceptional women, celebrating the power and strength of contemporary female friendship.
