Loved Zenobia's first book, 'Salt and Bone', so was looking forward to reading this and it did not disappoint. Spending so much time indoors at the moment felt like the perfect time to consider the domestic interior and the bodies, lives, selves and past histories our houses hold.

Her similes and metaphors are striking - Zenobia seems to be present
in the poems, moving through them like honey.
She leaves behind the impression of each space and place.
