AnamnesisLee, Iona More by this author...£10.00Out 2nd August 2023
Iona Lee's debut collection charts the journey of the writer, artist and performer into adulthood. Written in a unique voice, Iona playfully toys with thematic devices in this entertaining exploration of art and artifice, absence and impermanence, truth and tale telling.
Characterised by a deep love of language, its music and its magic, these poems reflect on memory, the future and other hauntings. Wittily observed, this collection is an attempt to connect the stars into tidy constellations, and to join the tiny, inchoate dots of self into something traceable and translatable.
Humorous and self-aware, gentle and philosophical, Anamnesis is written in the knowledge that in telling one's life-story, one creates it.
