Vertigo & ghost - poems Vertigo & ghost - poems

"Winner of the 2019 Forward and Roehampton Prizes, Vertigo & Ghost pitches quickly into an "addictive, thrilling, sickening" (John Self, Guardian) sequence of graphic, stunning pieces about Zeus as a serial rapist, for whom woman are prey and sex is weaponized.
