tract ** Pre-order **

Jane Hartshorn

Publication date October 2017


£5.00 Including P&P (Uk)


tract is an honest and shocking collection of narrative poems documenting the medical encounters that accompany diagnosis, prognosis, alongside the lived experience of chronic illness. This fiercely brave collection of prose poems presents the past and the horrors of the future through a series of memories that slip in and out of a dream realm. The collapsing philosophical, clinical, and personal registers expose the permanently fractured self– and map the way the body attempts to negotiate the embodied and disembodied experience and reality of living with Crohn’s disease.
