Abegail Morley’s second poetry collection The Skin Diary follows up on her Forward Prize shortlisted debut, How to Pour Madness into a Teacup. These poems explore loss in its many forms, with unwavering, fierce and astonishing brilliance. Here are imperfect hiding places, imaginary sisters and near-impossible burdens fill carrier bags and archives.
New skins and old disguises are stitched together whilst stories come apart at the seams and The Skin Diary explores the fragility and strange windfalls of being alive; through tough times and thin ice, these poems are darkly wry, brimming with and alert with Morley’s sharp and lyrical lines.
