A man claims ambush and assault by women's underwear, Houdini's diametrically opposed counterpart waits taped and shackled for her man to save her, and girly-weak is not an option. Described as a poet of the world, Jacqueline Saphra's work dances between the personal and the profound to offer a striking vision of growing up and growing older, mothers and motherhood, femininity and gender relations, all framed against the backdrop of a modern world, itself subject to growing pains. The Kitchen of Lovely Contraptions is her debut full collection.
Jacqueline Saphra read Drama at Manchester University and is a screenwriting graduate from the National Film School. has won several awards including first prize in the Ledbury Poetry Competition. Her pamphlet, Rock'n'Roll Mamma was published by Flarestack in 2008 and The Kitchen of Lovely Contraptions was developed with the support of the Arts Council of England.
