About the book
In Lobsters, Wayne Holloway-Smith turns his innovative poetics towards an exhilarating new work that is part songbook, part elastic melodrama. Here his unique voice undoes and remakes a self, moving into and out of tender proximity to other humans and objects of desire. Somewhere, in between the expansive and claustrophobic, the reader is offered a new space, crammed full with the music of what life gives and withholds.
