The Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 9

Posted on December 11, 2015 by Yen-Yen Lu

To get us into the festive spirit here at Inpress we've been looking back at some of our favourite books from 2015. It's...

Some riveting reads from September! 

Rebecca's Choice: The Shark Cage by Laura Seymour

In a series of beautifully structured sequences, Laura Seymour deploys an extraordinary linguistic dexterity; muscular yet tender, precise and inventive, conjuring images that brim with surprise. So hair is ‘a fistful of needles’ (The National Grid) or a ‘room fills with loose organs / of straw’ (Mick) and ‘’The sea is a cage of ferrets’ (Where Did You Get That Lipstick?)

Yen-Yen's Choice: The Boy in the Mirror by Tom Preston

In January 2011, aged 21, Tom Preston was diagnosed with stage 4 advanced aggressive lymphoma. His chances of survival were optimistically placed at around 40%. This short, autobiographical work tells the story of the fight in the months that followed – but this is no ordinary cancer memoir.

The Boy in the Mirror is written in the second person – so the events in this book are happening to you, the reader, living through the hope, love, suffering, death and black comedy encountered by Tom during the battle to save himself.
