I have been intrigued with the poetic power of "words" ever since I can remember. Symbolism, metaphor, and the magical transformations that can occur when you combine the sounds and shapes of language in unexpected ways. We use words to communicate, to describe, and to express something that cannot easily be. Following on from - A Sorta Fairytale - Nemesis has an arrangement of journeys, in the rain, through the length of a lifetime, amongst history, between emotions, and journeys across great oceans. So although it's not a 'themed' collection of words, as such, there is an underlying connection between the pieces. It's also a book saying goodbye to many things, people, places, old friends.
