Emily Harrison - Stockholm Syndrome

I came across Emily Harrison via the Lunar Podcasts that I posted about recently.  She has a collection out called Can't Sleep 'Cause My Bed's on Fire.   Which is described as:

... a search for love against the stark, yet humanising backdrop of the psychiatric institution. Gutsy and honest, Emily Harrison's poetry is simultaneously cynical and optimistic. In her verse she suggests that coming to terms with her mental health and falling in love are equally challenging, and depicts the consequences - both heartbreaking and hilarious - when the two collide.
Stockholm Syndrome certainly fits that bill.  Enjoy!
