In Grief Stitches, Emily Harrison has created a remarkable series of poems that exist in a continual state of suspension. Throughout, there is an uncanny sense of 'almost'-almost understanding-almost recovering from-almost suffocating-almost free. These poems crackle with vividity as much as they shift, challenging us to consider the speakers' weighted existence as they navigate between recovery and survival, charm and approval.

Here, Swindon's uneven landscape is scored with phone boxes and sugar-the ground slowly thickening around each chaotic detail with moments of calm and domestic comfort. From addiction and abuse to actualising a selfhood, this exciting and original poetic enquiry deftly explores the possibilities of a life where everyday suffering is replaced with small luxuries and a power greater than oneself.
