Kim Moore, in her lively debut poetry collection, sets out her stall in the opening poems, firmly in the North amongst 'My People': "who swear without knowing they are swearing... scaffolders and plasterers and shoemakers and carers...". The poet's voice is direct, rhythmic, compelling. The lives of others also feature throughout, including a quietly devastating central sequence, 'How I abandoned My Body To His Keeping': the story of a woman embroiled in a relationship marked by coercion and violence. These are close-to-the-bone pieces, harrowing and exact.
