With Another Word for Home is Blackbird Catherine Wilson Garry brings the world a light that is much needed right now.

This first poetry collection by Catherine Wilson Garry examines the nature of solace and escapism from grief and loss. Through retracing her personal losses, people-watching, magpies and olive oil offer small moments of transformational joy.

Objects and belongings are also given a poetic power: binoculars, shoes, books and flowers help bring the deceased back to life – both in memory and on the page. Wilson Garry explores grief and loss on a wider, political scale, including examinations of climate change, industrial action, isolation – advocating for a world where happiness thrives instead of just survival.
