Wedding Underwear for Mermaids

Author: Linda Ann Strang

ISBN: 9780956665843  |  90 pages

Linda Ann Strang’s first poetry collection skilfully entwines fairy tales, womanhood, African culture, and the female psyche. The warrior mother, the spurned lover, the maltreated bride: they are all here, expertly drawn in lush, original language that you’ll want to wallow in from beginning to end.

Unflinching and intuitive, Strang’s forty-two poems paint an image of womanhood and femininity that is at once insightful, witty, dark, intimate, and utterly human.
