WITCH is a strange, visceral and darkly witty debut by a startling new voice in British poetry. Rebecca Tamas reckons with blood and earth, mysticism and the devil, witch trials and the suffragettes, gender and sexuality. These are poems as spells - spells against suppression, silence and obedience; hexes that cling to your body like sweat.
Presents a poetic exploration of the world of numbers from a poet at the height of his powers. This book presents mathematics through a range of voices: a newsreader reports on the government's introduction of the new number through, a mafia boss invents Roman numerals, and a fisherman gives his sardonic take on Pythagorus.

This is the story of what life becomes when stripped of all that makes it worth living - of what humans become when they lose their humanity.
