Product Overview

Author: Limburg, Joanne

Paperack: 72 pages

Publisher: Bloodaxe Books


This third collection of poems from British poet Limberg commemorates her lost brother and a lost self. Growing up with undiagnosed Asperger's, Limburg identified with Alice from Alice in Wonderland. Another of the book's main sequences, The Oxygen Man, was written in response to the death of Limburg's younger brother, a brilliant chemist who took his own life. In this collection Limburg collages lines and phrases drawn from the two Alice books to create a disturbingly effective language to express the nature, discomfort and alienation of autistic experiences.
