Modern Medicine by Lucy Hurst
Lucy Hurst’s debut is a startlingly bold and innovative chapbook. These poems explore experiences of illness, medicine, and disability, through visceral phrasing and mordant
humour. Modern Medicine embodies the weirdness and discomfort of bodily suffering.
‘Brutally funny, experimental and fiercely original poetry that digs into chronic illness, disability, and the complicated pains of being alive in a body right now. Lucy Hurst is a dynamic, essential new voice in poetry.’ - Rebecca Tamás, Lecturer, Poet and Author
