Abstract

As the title suggests, Peel Yourself like Fruit is a book of poems which exemplify a hunger to connect with the self and the world as well as a discomfort at the vulnerability which that connection entails. Whether expressed through a first-person speaker or a less narrative lyricism, the world view of this collection is one of extreme ambivalence – a tug-of-war between past and present, desire and loss, body and mind, family and self.
