Longlisted for the Polari Prize

In her third collection, acclaimed performance poet Sophia Blackwell explores connections, relationships and journeys, and celebrates their importance in a divided world. From Brighton, Paris and the Edinburgh Fringe to Amsterdam, Australia and outer space, The Other Woman maps women’s journeys through time and geography, exploring identities, bloodlines, buried pasts and alternative futures, ending up somewhere new and different – the country of marriage.

‘Some of Sophia Blackwell’s poems read like Nico should be singing them to John Cale’s viola, some as if Shakespeare’s slut sister taught him all he knew, others are as new as the next dawn. Dirty, juicy, knowing, open – works for me.’
Stella Duffy

‘As soon as I fi nished this raw, addictive, affectionate poetry collection, I went back to the start and read it all again.’
Kirsty Logan on The Fire Eater’s Lover
