Breaking the Surface, Paperback / softback Book

Breaking the Surface Paperback / softback

Part of the Flap Series series

Paperback / softback


The poems in Katie Hale's Breaking the Surface are populated with totems of our wild, essential truths- from the raven bearing witness to death, to the wolf's dark appetite.

Hale interrogates desire in its different forms and unpicks the seams of myths, folktales and fairy stories, offering them up with new life.

A self-assured debut.
