From the publisher

Eloise Hendy's debut is a candid collection of poems that are sardonic, arresting and fiercely feminist. the blue room is dotted with sharp imagery-the heart rate of smashed glass, a dentist with stiff fingers, regurgitating confetti. Hendy's brilliant voice seems to relish the role of both salvager and confidante of memory. 'Her bright and broad imaginings disrupt verse's dreaminess, slapping a splash your way to bring you back into the glistering present.' - Alice Hill-Woods, SPAM-- Eloise Hendy is a poet and writer living in London. Her work has appeared in Ambit, The Tangerine, and The Stinging Fly, amongst others, and she was recently shortlisted for The White Review Poet's Prize 2018
