This Thing of Blood & Love, Lesley Saunders' fifth collection with Two Rivers Press, is an intense examination of human culpability, the secrets we half-keep from ourselves, the contradictory selves we inhabit, the histories that live on unreconciled in us, the planet whose imperfect stewards we are; and above all the unfathomable mystery of being (in) a body, incarnated, made flesh - a thing of blood and love that betrays us with its appalling vulnerabilities. The poems in this book display the celebratory delight in language which has continued to impress readers and reviewers of Saunders' work, though here imbued with a disturbed and disturbing awareness of mortality - the ultimate vulnerability from which in the end we derive our deepest sense of self.
