Drawing influence from her omnivorous reading, Alice infuses word collages and broken fields of type with lyric feeling. In this debut collection she has curated poems that reflect conditions of lostness. She observes and resists the desire to make logical conclusions, opting instead for phrases, images and voices of anachronism and surprise.
