About the Book

Flora plays a central role in Tracy Ryan’s acclaimed collection of poetry. Splicing the natural world to moments of personal history, Hothouse is an intense exploration of the ever-shifting an precarious boundaries between the self and the outside world.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘Sometimes Tracy Ryan reminds me a little of Sylvia Plath … sometimes she reminds me a little of the strength and savagery of Gig Ryan, but mostly she is her own self, dancing with a language forged in talent and courage, working through the methodology of precise exploration.’ Dorothy Hewett

‘Rewarding on all levels — there is wit, beauty and some serious thinking.’ Southerly

‘There are many flowers in Tracy Ryan’s taut, tart poems, and the first fruit mentioned is the pomegranate, which she addresses as herself.’ Weekend Australian

‘Ryan’s best so far.’ Canberra Times
