PHANTOMS AS EUPHEMISMS FOR DISASTER | N.L. SHOMPOLE
As a collection of poetry and prose, Phantoms as Euphemisms for Disaster explores the many faces of loss. Not only the loss of love, but loss of language, culture, identity and self. The book seamlessly navigates the silences between harrowing conversations, to realizations about growing up, about grief and how to deal with loss, to the reawakening of tenderness, hope and awareness in the innate power of self. This is a fantastic collection for anyone who appreciates a unique voice, beautiful language and the ache and sweetness that is living.
'I had to read this collection three times before I realized what exactly was happening to me. From the very beginning I felt as if I’m being overwhelmed by something, and as I read on, the feeling only grew. I finished it in about two hours, I took a small break and started it again. Once again, I felt overpowered. I slept on it. Then the third time was the same. I felt every line as heaviness on my chest.' // HRISTINA via I'LL BE FINE ALONE READS
