A Refuge of Tales


What does it mean to make a home inside a story? Stories are safe, comfortable, familiar. Fairytales and myths, these stories we all know and grew up with are even moreso. A Refuge of Tales takes everyday tropes and asks: safe for who? This is a collection of poems for anyone who has ever felt outside of the myth. With language both sharp and lyrical, Lynne Sargent weaves a treatise on the power of stories, and how those who have been left behind can take up that power and use it to build a new, better world.

"Filled with irony, rage, humour, and compassion, this poetry collection takes our fairy tales and fables, and all the stories we tell ourselves, and doesn't simply deconstruct them, but blasts them into tiny shards, razor-sharp and beautiful." Su J Sokol, author of the Sunburst-nominated novel, Cycling to Asylum
