Poems to get us through: ‘I thought about drilling a hole in my head’

There could not be a better time to support small presses and new voices in poetry by buying their books and pamphlets. The poet and visual artist Ella Frears’ new collection is a Poetry Book Society recommendation for this summer. We may yet find ourselves performing some of the beautifully strange, moon-driven actions of her haunting poem.
