Parenthetical Bodies by Allison Gallagher: PRE-ORDER NOW


Second edition with a new cover! Pre-order now and receive on or before 9 August 2019.

Parenthetical Bodies by Allison Gallagher holds you close and says “it’s okay, things are weird”. These poems are about what it takes to be in and amongst bodies, to be loving and empathetic in the internet age, or to survive in a city being slowly crushed under the weight of its own housing bubble.

Parenthetical Bodies explores queerness and transgressive bodies. Hope glimmers and shakes as Gallagher entwines tenderness and heartache, surfing dogs and estrogen pills. Gallagher’s debut collection is packed with writing that is instantly loveable and as eviscerating as it is gentle.

Second edition. Perfect bound. 52 pages.

Praise for Parenthetical Bodies

"Thinking and feeling through the work of Aisyah Shah Idil, Allison Gallagher and Emily Crocker at this particular moment of time, has opened space; activating language, words, grammar, paper and energy with their truths and generosity." - Frankie Hanman Siegersma, Australian Poetry
