Breaking the Surface

by Katie Hale

Part of the Flap Series Series

Breaking the Surface Synopsis

The poems in Katie Hale's Breaking the Surface are populated with totems of our wild, essential truths- from the raven bearing witness to death, to the wolf's dark appetite. Hale interrogates desire in its different forms and unpicks the seams of myths, folktales and fairy stories, offering them up with new life. A self-assured debut.

Breaking the Surface Press Reviews

Katie Hale's nimble poems, attuned to both the mythic and the quotidian, are full of the delighted surprise and sadness of being alive. Read them and be thrilled. - Jacob Polley
