Description

' Cecilia Knapp is a great writer. I love her' KAE TEMPEST

In her devastatingly powerful debut collection, Cecilia Knapp examines her experience of motherlessness and its lasting impact, as well as the lessons passed between generations of women in her family. These poems explore her relationship with her body, with sex, and with shame as she traverses the violence of romantic love, but also employs humour and mischief, a wry reclaiming of her power.

We hear stories of a challenging childhood in a seaside town, a girl growing up, getting out and reckoning with the guilt of being 'one of these people now.'

The collection also offers a look at her close relationship with her older brother, his struggles with addiction and, eventually, his death. With tenderness, she remembers him and unpacks the unique grief that comes after a suicide.

Peach Pig is a candid and unflinching look at loss, an attempt to find a language for it. It grapples with feelings of anxiety, insecurity and displaced anger; but it is also a collection full of dreams, hope and vibrant persistence, a willingness to question and to carry on.
