tract ** OUT OF PRINT! **

Jane Hartshorn

Publication date October 2017


£5.00 Including P&P (Uk)


tract is an honest and shocking collection of narrative poems documenting the medical encounters that accompany diagnosis and prognosis, alongside the lived experience of chronic illness. This fiercely brave collection of prose poems presents past and future horrors through a series of memories that slip in and out of a dream realm. The collapsing philosophical, clinical, and personal registers expose the permanently fractured self– and map the way the body attempts to negotiate the embodied and disembodied experience and realities of living with Crohn’s disease.
