‘Entirely electric and incisive, Neusum-James’ poems are full-watt glare and heart.’ Rachel Long

surrender dorothy marks the arrival of an addictive new voice. These are poems full of guts, surprise and originality, which leave the reader reflecting on the complexities of power, pleasure, desire and shame.’ Cecilia Knapp

Shanay Neusum-James’ debut pamphlet, surrender dorothy, establishes her as an electrifying new voice in poetry. This collection explores the permeabilities of what you thought you knew about race and gender, childhood and adulthood. It gives voice to the conflicting desires to cross over to other shores: to grow up and, when grown up, become a child again. Neusum-James’ work is probing and playful, harsh, laugh-out-loud funny and always real. It will leave you shaken, stirred and longing for another shot.
