The Hard Word Box : A Poet's Exploration of Dementia and Ageing, Paperback / softback Book

The Hard Word Box : A Poet's Exploration of Dementia and Ageing Paperback / softback

Description

In 2013 poet Sarah Hesketh spent 20 weeks visiting a residential care home for people with dementia.

The result is The Hard Word Box, a book of poems and verbatim interviews that takes the reader on a surprising and enriching journey through memory and imagination.

The agility of Hesketh's poetic voice channels moments of tenderness, suffering and humour, revealing dementia as a negotiation with language and silence.

The Hard Word Box is an inventive and compassionate meditation on the things that will be lost.
