Caught in a small place somewhere between dream and sorrow, a lonely person struggles to come to terms with the death of a loved one and the possibility that love of a different kind might exist.
A narrative in prose poetry, Year W warps the everyday through the lens of grief and loneliness and finds that, even when things are at their worst, there is, sometimes, reason for hope.
"Year W starts as it goes on — a compelling distillation of Modernism and Surrealism in conversation with electronic and concrete reality. A love-story, a ghost-story, a disturbing and humorous twist on old and new modes of communication, the narrative is kept fresh and unusual with details and objects that switch artfully between dreams and everyday living. A refreshing and skilful use of prose poetry, Year W both honours and challenges the form’s potential." — Jane Monson
