“The poems are vivid, powerful and intense at times. I enjoyed the collection so much I read it in one sitting." - TheBookLoversBoudoir.wordpress.com
“Are there hints of Sylvia Plath? A very chatty anthology with mentions of love and hate, politics, abuse and fascinations in general." - Laura Sansom
About This Book
Jennifer Juan returns, to share her early onset midlife crisis, with her fifth major poetry collection, 27, With A White Lighter. A reflection of her life so far, and what the future holds, Juan muses over romance, the meaning of life, drug culture, sexuality, Brexit, and so much more.
The collection includes the poem “Toyland”, a playful look at first loves and the dangers of romance, which was recently shortlisted for the Zealous.co “Zealous Stories: Poetry” competition. Full of contemplative verses, in her signature raw and empathetic style, Juan guides the reader through her most personal and reflective work yet, discussing the facts of life, from the perspective of an inquisitive millennial, toying with the past and looking towards the future.

"This is hard-hitting and honest and you can feel Juan’s angst seeping through frequently whilst reading many of these poems, such as 27, With A White Lighter and Melody to name but two." - KateKreates.co.uk
