I was fortunate enough to read an advance copy of The Poetry Annals’ The Anatomy of Desire, which is being released today, and to provide a blurb for its back cover.
THE ANATOMY OF DESIRE
EDITED BY SHEKINAH VERA-CRUZ
Publication Date: 28 December 2018
Paperback and eBook; 74 pages
“On one page, you’ll be awash in the imagery and tactility of a scene, then on the next, you’ll be entrenched in an intangible emotion. The Anatomy of Desire takes you from the open sky to a fire deep within the earth, yet basks in a grounded, painful reality. It takes you through time and space, through seasons, from childhood to adulthood, and into history and the future. … This anthology balances trauma and pain with love, lust, and longing to craft a collection that will stay with you long after you’ve read its final page.”
— Juliette Sebock, author of “Mistakes Were Made” (2017) and Founding Editor of Nightingale & Sparrow
