This book harnesses the momentum and paradox of ‘indoor skydiving’ to ask searching questions about identity, mortality and exile. Challenging, contemporary and playful, it explores subjects as diverse as human trafficking and celebrity in the digital age with humour, vitality and practical compassion. A love of language and an incisive craft unify the personal and political, with nothing taken for granted.

‘She re-defines the role and purpose of the poet in the UK.’ – The Cadaverine

‘She knows that heavy subjects are best delivered in the lightest language. Her first collection is a single bullet, and its poems are shrapnel.’ – Stride
