This is not normal
Poems by Carol Rowntree Jones
What may be lost and what discovered when we find our capacity for love? The strange and beautiful poems of This is not normal behaviour (winner of the Overton Prize 2014) explore the dark fears of motherhood and human nature, and the risks love commits us to.
"Sophisticated and carefully crafted poems, unnerving yet elegant, accomplished yet strange." - Sarah Jackson
"The small things these poems are made from … remind us of the uneasy beauty of our everyday world." - Matthew Welton, Poet and Lecturer in Writing and Creativity at the University of Nottingham
