Proverbs for a Woman Drinking Alone is a pamphlet of poetry which tackles class, grief, and sexuality. Talia Randall confronts these themes alternately with closed fists and open hands, lacing humour into even the darkest subjects. These poems claim a sense of place and belonging while creating a space for the reader to listen to Randall’s sharp and precise voice, one that is at once colloquial and lyrical, playful and sombre. This is a book which both demands and fulfils the reader’s attention.
