From London's hospital wards to rural Italy and the Great Plains, Sally Read's first collection eulogises the emotional and physical borders we cross, whether in sexual surrender, the squeezing of a trigger, or the point at which skin is pierced by a needle.
What results appeals to the thresholds at which we succumb to desire, love, or grief.
Yet, ultimately, there is tenderness and acceptance as she considers what breaks us, and what binds.
