About this Event

All welcome to this celebration of How To Live With Mammals, new poetry by Ash Davida Jane (VUP).

ABOUT THE BOOK

we love an underdog especially when it’s a whale

we see ourselves in them literally in them lounging

in their cathedral of a mouth just looking for love

All around us, life is both teeming and vanishing. How do we live in this place of so many others and so many last things? How to Live With Mammals is not a book of instruction but a book of reimagining and a book of longing. In these funny and often poignant poems, Ash Davida Jane asks how we might reorient ourselves, and our ways of loving one another, as the futures that we once imagined grow ever more precarious.

'Urgent, funny and tender: these poems shine.' —Louise Wallace
