Slip Stream is an account of a time when Paula Greem was buffeted in the slipstream of an illness. How can life go on as usual? she asks – and finds answers in poetry and music, crosswords and cherries, lists and family love. Green tells a personal story of breast cancer, from an initial mammogram to biopsy, operations, radiotherapy treatment and recovery. Making up a fluid, intensely felt narrative, the poems are untitled and mostly short, charting time passing and seasons turning by procedures done, books read, appointments made, food cooked and dreams dreamed. Slip Stream is both a moving but uplifting book about a experience with cancer and a writer's thoughtful exploration of how life may (or may not) be expressed in words.
