Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

British poet "Selima Hill's" latest collection has already been garnering praise in her native England. Bunny was short-listed for the 2001 T.S. Eliot Prize and was a Poetry Book Society Choice selection. Always blackly comic, sometimes beguilingly erotic, each echoing poem opens a door on madness or menace, shame, or blame. Bunny tells the intimate story of a young girl growing up in London in the 1950s, confused and betrayed but finding herself, becoming independent. Appearances are always deceptive: that predatory lodger; the animals outside and within; the girl sectioned in the hospital, nursing her sense of wrong; the blueness of things; the fire. What the house contains, it cannot hide. These poems reveal not only what was papered over, but what she learned. About how to be a woman; how to be loved; and what happens to innocence.

Synopsis:

A collection of poetry which tells the intimate story of a young girl growing up in London in the 1950s, confused and betrayed but eventually finding herself and becoming independent.
