Simultaneously stripping women bare and revealing them in all their guises and disguises, these poems tell tall stories as though they were true confessions, and spin modern myths from real women seen in every aspect—as bodies and corpses, writers and workers, shoppers and slimmers, fairytale royals or girls-next-door.

Praise For…

“One of Britain's premier poets here does what she does best, joining wild, surrealistic imagery and pointillist detail to create sharply realized, visionary poems. . . . Duffy never settles for mere cleverness. Her poetic technique is sure and subtle.” ―Booklist

"Duffy is arguably the nation’s favorite living poet." —Jeanette Winterson
