Escape Room embroiders the misadventures and surrealism of an ingénue’s clear-eyed wonder and cynicism in graduating high school, job interviews, work-life, atheism and character portraits that are far from caricature. This is a collection exploring the possibilities of freedom, goodness, meaning and connection under late capitalism. Can we escape the imperatives of money, gender and human fallibility to freely construct our own identities – should we even try? This complexity is balanced with a resolute joy and humour. Littlefair’s poems are a delectable serving of postmodern irony, a contemporary Betjemanesque indictment on suburban, middle-class life, wryly observed with a razor-sharp wit, executed with warmth, honesty and precision that make this an irresistible and perspicacious collection.
