    “When one is highly alert to language . . . everything begs to be in a poem” —James Tate
    How do we nurture our alertness? Flood our brains with all the possibilities of language? Make the whole world beg to be included on our page? This will be a week of linguistic
    adventure and experimentation. Expect an avalanche of new poems.

    In her fifth collection Bird surrenders her poetic weaponry and goes on a quest to write the 'simple truth'. Redeploying the surreal imagery of her earlier work, she ventures into the badlands of the human psyche. From a geriatric thrill-seeker more concerned with sexual experimentation than reading the Radio Times, to a self storage facility that holds people's shameful secrets rather than their belongings, Caroline's direct and unflinching approach cuts to the heart of the human experience, our fears, loves and internal conflicts.You can pre-order the book here.
