Review: Ghosting for beginners
Publisher: Indigo Dreams Publishing
Author: Anna Saunders
Anna’s fifth collection of poetry- she knows what she’s doing. The cover has contrasting primary colours and pathways heading towards, or away from, something unknown and particularly ghostly. Great set up for the subject and tone of the collection. Anna’s own fairy tales fill the pages, creating accessible other worlds full of myth and legend the reader will want to explore time and again to fully grasp all that’s on offer.
Some favourite lines are found in ‘The Visitation’
‘It’s the flesh and blood that spook us.
Not the whisper in the next room,
The airborne gauze, the glassy aura.’
