And I have done more than just simply get by, So much more than escape or survive, Through the galvanisation of love, time and patience, I'll take hold of my story and thrive. After life that was seldom what life ought to be, Through laughter and love I'll be whole, This story is mine from the cover to spine, And the narrative I will control.

Whether she's writing letters to her younger self, advocating for women's rights or adapting fairy tales to process an abusive relationship, Len's voice is bold, unashamedly frank and unmistakably hers. The poems in this collection, both funny and fiercely feminist, announce a formidable new talent.

Moving deftly between English and Scots, poyums is as approachable as it is affecting.
