Overview

Description

In this book, Carrie’s writings embody this mystery of our lives as a living paradox. Her keen insight into what it is to be human holds the dialectic tension of this struggle in balance; just as you find yourself hurtling down a cul de sac of the impossible and a full stop, you realise that the full stop is actually a comma!

About the Author

As a young person Cairns was treated in the NHS with electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), but since then has worked in the mental health sector of the NHS in a variety of roles, most recently as a consultant family psychotherapist with children and young people and their families. Writing from experience of both sides of the mental health fence, Cairns is easy to categorise as a vegetarian, tree-hugging pacifist of uncertain gender, or as a literary-minded, caring professional, but does not like labels of any kind and would prefer you to read some of these poems and come to your own conclusions.
