The Year of the Butterfly

The Year of the Butterfly is a slippery collection of poems, composed in the back bathrooms of Soho gay bars and the muddy woods of Essex. In its queer and confessional fragments, bodies, lives and loves are formed and reformed in clay and glitter; the unruly dead are eulogized on coffee shop napkins and the promise of tomorrow is the eternal driving force. These poems are questions and answers; stories of change, growth, and endings. Proof that it is never too late to become who we truly are.

Praise for The Year of the Butterfly

A collection of uncanny fairy stories rebooted, queered, and running amok on the streets after midnight. A collection that is defiantly alive and viscerally truthful, whilst also speaking tenderly with the dead. - SL Grange
