A daring and innovative collection of new poems by the controversial author of Paul's Case and VillainElle.

Missing Children is a daring and innovative collection of new poems by the controversial author of Paul's Case and VillainElle. Here, Lynn Crosbie creates a bold fusion of genres by taking traditional elements of the novel - dialogue, plot, and description - and weaving them through a series of narratively linked poems. Centering on a man and a woman obsessively drawn to each other, Missing Children unfolds around a forbidden relationship and a series of letters, written by the protagonist, to the parents of missing children. Infused with psychological insight, rich in cultural iconography, and written in spare, clear language, Missing Children takes us to the moral fringes of society and challenges us to judge what we find. Crosbie breaks new stylistic and dramatic ground in this compelling, original collection.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
