Wilderness of Skin is a rich montage of all human conditions with a unique style and astonishing breadth of language. A liberated writer, in spirit and form (with a wicked sense of humour and a transatlantic lack of equivocation), Kathleen Strafford’s poems are daring, unafraid of dark corners, jogging the reader’s comfort deep into the lives of many characters and the circumstances that inhibit their lives - loss, longing, abuse, survival and love. Each page throws up a new awareness; it is rare to find yourself feeling disappointed on turning the last to find there is not another following.
