Playing House is the debut collection of poetry from Katherine Stansfield. A concise wit, a distinct voice and a unsettling view of the domestic, characterize these poems who’s subjects are the ordinary as viewed through the author’s satirical yet sympathetic eye.

John Lennon’s tooth, an imaginary ‘Canada’, bees in Rhode Island, jetlag and office politics are all peculiar grist to this author’s mill. She presents both historical subjects, such as Captain Scott of the Antarctic, and common objects, such as household bleach, with a skewed perspective, adding humour, drama and a quietly distinctive pathos. Not only a very promising, but already a quite polished writer.
