About the Book

‘Scar revision’ — surgically minimising the effects of scars — is the powerful central image of Tracy Ryan’s highly accomplished new collection. Both formally adventurous and movingly personal, these poems offer vivid accounts of how we survive and ‘rewrite’ literal and symbolic scars, and of regeneration through the risks of family.

Praise for the Book
‘Tracy Ryan’s poems are tightly packed vibrations of spiky conceits. They have a restless intelligence which seems to suspect everything they touch; the references are scholarly and the contention is feminist but the result is polychromatic.’ — Tim Allen, Terrible Work, United Kingdom
