THE INSTANT No.2 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLERAnd I have done more than just simply get bySo much more than escape or surviveThrough the galvanisation of love, time and patienceI'll take hold of my story and thrive.

After life that was seldom what life ought to beThrough laughter and love I'll be wholeThis story is mine from the cover to spineAnd the narrative I will controlWhether she's writing letters to her younger self, advocating for women's rights or adapting fairy tales to process an abusive relationship, Len's voice is bold, unashamedly frank and unmistakably hers. The poems in this collection, both funny and fiercely feminist, announce a formidable new talent. Moving deftly between English and Scots, poyums is as approachable as it is affecting.
