By Josephine Lay
Josephine Lay is a writer, novelist and poet. Josephine writes poetry for the page and for performance. This collection highlights her passion for both the written and the spoken word.
Unravelling is a collection of poems written within one year. Josephine Lay writes about the unravelling nature of things in her life; divorce, bereavement, health issues (after hitting her head and getting concussion, twice) and a few poems touching on the political situation in this country during 2018. Her poems speak of the human condition; of life, love, loss and even death. Here is sadness and descent but also the struggle towards the light and the survival of the human spirit.
‘Unravelling by Josephine Lay is a worthy addition to any one’s poetry collection. Her arrival on the performance poetry scene has been most welcome, and her words work equally well on the page. Highly recommended.’
~ Clive Oseman
‘The first time I heard Josephine Lay’s poetry it made me cry. Rich in feeling, yet easy to relate to. Lay’s work is pleasure to hear and read’

A collection of poems, written in 2017/2018... . . . .
The Japanese poems are truly beautiful pieces, powerful, moving, and wonderfully written. I'm sat here drinking coffee and I'm lost for words....
~ Scott Cowley aka Rusty Goàt... . . . . .
Peter Lay’s words ‘…are spinning through my mind’. Sometimes beautiful… Sometimes weird… Always kind. An altered perspective… A modern-day Don Quixote...

‘Another Friday’ should not be seen as a sequel to ‘Yellow Over The Mountain’, more of a poetry supplement. Most of the poems were written collaboratively via exchange of email and text messages between the authors.
By Z D Dicks
“A startling and knife-sharp collection of poems by a poet who challenges our preconceptions of ‘page’ poetry. Fusing an adept handling of form with experimental inventiveness, a complex, rich vocabulary and potent, sometimes unsettling subject matter, this is a Red Bull of a read, stimulating and provocative. ”
