LEWES: Clare Best launch reading

Friday, September 16th, 2011, 7pm for 7.45pm, FREE
Needlemakers Cafe,
West Street,

Waterloo Press and Needlewriters present the launch of Excisions, by Clare Best.
An unusually clear and direct debut collection. The poems speak of one life, but resound with universal themes of love and passion, inheritance and physicality, loss and adaptation. Includes the acclaimed sequence Self-portrait without Breasts, inspired by the poet's own journey through preventative double mastectomy.   
An outstanding first collection. Clare Best treads a sure path through intensity, complication and danger, and the resulting poems question the very nature of change or loss.
