An award-winning joint volume of poetry, Sandy Jeffs invites the readers into the world of schizophrenia in 'Poems from the Madhouse', while Deborah Staines presents vivid images that evoke the mythic past and the technological future in 'Now Millennium'. Staines' sequence, Venus Port, explores the destruction of the social fabric set alongside poems of love and loss, images of video worlds as well as words that catch moments on the cusp of millennium. Poems from the Madhouse invites readers into the paradoxical world of insanity: the confusion and clarity, the courage and fear, the bleak despair and the black comedy.
