'In this intensely personal collection, On explores loss, separation and renewal, online dating, sex, longing, rejection and desire. Though they are personal and confessional, taken from the authors own life, these poems speak to anyone who’s ever loved and lost. 

'Filled with short sharp burst of emotion, this stunning debut seeks to untangle the messiness of human relationships.' (Publication summary)
