Scar Revision


By Tracy Ryan

‘Scar revision’ – surgically minimising the effects of scars – is the powerful central image of Tracy Ryan’s highly accomplished new collection. Both formally adventurous and movingly personal, these poems offer vivid accounts of how we survive and ‘rewrite’ literal and symbolic scars, and of regeneration through the risks of family.
