Hue & Cry

One Human in Height
by Rachel O'Neill

Rachel O'Neill's debut poetry collection fuses remembered experience, family life, and relationships with broader human legacies, from popular culture, and social history, through to digital technology and language. These poems include a thief who plays a musical interlude on an oboe before getting down to business, a botanical species, the Kafka Diver, that lures in guests for an unusual holiday, and a parachutist who free-falls to her family reunion.
