This is What Happened
A stunning debut poetry and visual art collection by Melissa Diem.
‘This is an electrifying narrative of the ancient drama of ‘relationship’, where Self and Other dance it out again and again. This formally intricate dance of language and breath and stress swings between Florida landscapes dreaming in the heat and Irish skies that threaten and enchant, between the intensely private and the almost terrifying immensities of the cosmos. Something of the loneliness of such cosmic awareness is in the poems too. I’d known Melissa Diem’s wonderful first novel, Changeling, so I was prepared for a powerful experience from her debut poetry collection. And I was right.‘
