Overview

A Hospital Odyssey is an outrageously imaginative voyage through illness and healing. Drawing on the most recent biomedical research into stem cells and cancer, the poem is a journey through the body's inner space and the strange habitats created by disease, including the chimeras people see when they're unwell. Immensely readable, A Hospital Odyssey is a modern epic: Dr Who meets Paradise Lost. The poem asks: what is health? And what does it mean to care for someone who's ill? "A voice vibrant, lively and clear as a bell - not looking inward so much as in wonder at the world around her. And, pressed from her lines, a rare vintage of wisdom."-San Francisco Chronicle
