Marking the halfway point in our series of favourites from 2015, here’s June!

Rebecca's Choice: Blood Work by Matthew Siegel
 

 

A debut poetry collection from Matthew Siegel centers on containment: the containment of blood in our bodies, our bodies as containers, and the ways in which we contain ourselves.

"The deceptive directness of Matthew Siegel’s debut is remarkable; in his capable hands, illness reveals how barely contained any human being is, and how we reach, alone and together, for whatever will hold us." - Mark Doty

Yen-Yen's Choice: The Lost Art of Sinking by Naomi Booth
 
 

This is the story of Esther, who lives in the Pennines with her father. Esther is obsessed with experimenting with different ways to pass out: from snorting Daz powder at school to attempted auto-asphyxiation in a serviced apartment in north London. But what happens when you take something too far? And what has Esther’s mother, a beautiful dancer wasting away in her bedroom, to do with it all?
