Keisha Thompson writes poetry so unlike the verse we're all familiar with that it takes a little while to get your head around the miraculous things she's doing.
Rather than writing in neat stanzas her work takes on all sorts of shapes: layouts of grids with words appearing like drawings in a cartoon strip, lists divided and titled like the closing credits of a movie, Venn diagrams showing how emotions intersect and plans of the solar system which turn out to be a biography of Florence Nightingale.
Her remarkable book explores language, parent/daughter relationships and includes the script of her play "The Man In The Moon". If you're a poet or you love words this is a great book to have on your shelf.
