The book’s blurb:
Tender, loving and visceral, Joanna Ingham’s poems chart her journey with a giant ovarian cyst, from diagnosis to surgery to recovery. Via a landscape of scanner rooms and hospital wards, the poems explore the impact of illness, and the body as a site of disgust and shame but also healing and endurance.
Unflinching and forensic, Ovarium looks at the disorientating and sometimes patriarchal language of anatomy and medicine, and the way illness can change the relationship we have with our own bodies.
