The Facts

Author(s): Therese Lloyd

NZ Poetry

She is made of blood she raises herself up to be seen


The superb second book by the author of the acclaimed 2013 collection Other Animals traces the course of a failing marriage, while illuminating the ways in which art and poetry are essential to life. Deeply felt and lyrically arresting, The Facts offers poems that move with honesty and formal intelligence through matters of creativity and love.
