    From navigating the oft competing worlds of religion and desire to balancing society's expectations with the raw experience of being a woman in the world; from detailing the experiences of growing up as a first-generation black British woman to working through situations of dependence and abuse; from finding solace in the echoing caverns of depression and loss to exploring the vulnerability and redemption in falling in love, each of the raw and immediate poems in Daley-Ward's Bone resonate to the core of what it means to be human.

    Through emotional snapshots that span from her adolescence through her early 20s, each brought to life in Yrsa's gorgeous signature style of open white spaces and stirring, singular lines, The Terrible evokes the pain and thrill of girlhood, as well as what it means to discover the fear and power that come with being a woman. With a sharp eye and a rare talent for mining the beauty and the sorrow in the everyday, Yrsa recounts her remarkable life.

    This is the story of Yrsa Daley-Ward and all the things that happened - 'even the Terrible Things (and God, there were Terrible Things)'. It's about her childhood in the northwest of England with her beautiful, careworn mother Marcia; Linford (the man formerly known as Dad, 'half-fun, half-frightening'); and her little brother, Roo, who sees things written in the stars. It's about growing up and discovering the power and fear of her own sexuality, of pitch grey days of pills and powder and encounters. It's about damage and pain but also joy.
