Notes from a Shipwreck, the third collection of poems from Ledbury Munthe shortlisted poet Jessica Mookherjee, is a richly-detailed and illuminating book of poems of dislocation, voyage and transformation.

"‘We were first born in the jetsam of burning ships.’ Freighted with loss, the vessels of Jessica Mookherjee’s questing third collection navigate complex oceans within the self. Here are islands of memory where fantastical transformations take place, where brown feathers sprout from skin, cutlery gossips and a body is ‘made of icebergs and disaster’. Then, amid the strings of gorgeous imagery, a small detail expertly snags the reader’s heart and won’t let go. Vigorous and magical as a flask of crisp salt wind.” - John McCullough

Notes from a Shipwreck is a miraculous and – I think - important collection of poems, written with inventiveness and extraordinary phrasing. Each poem is a magic box of language: surprising, transforming, and always wonderfully disquieting.”  - David Morley
