Suzanne Batty writes bold, flamboyant, risky poems that come from left field and Manchester, mixing dogs and people, mean streets and threats from inside. In this first book-length collection, the real and unreal are deliberately confused. The book creates a fantastical landscape in which actual experience can be transformed through archetypes and fairytales, urban myths and nightmares. The poems chart a journey from mental anguish to spiritual joy - and back again. The writing balances on a sharp edge between sanity and madness, between meaning and insignificance, with a dark humor and a tight grip on life. Through it all there is the wisdom of dog -- a spiritual mentor who cocks a leg at doubt and despair.
