"Dancing To Motown" is the debut pamphlet from Brighton poet Lorna Thorpe. With an unflinching and wry candour, Thorpe wrestles with love, sex and the disenchantments of dating past forty. From dance floors and first kisses to blind dates and funerals, her poems confront the difficult emotions of longing, loss and unfulfilled hope, always with a musical accompaniment. Lorna explores the way songs become the soundtrack of our lives, orchestrating identity and notions of love in adolescence, or providing a nostalgic hit in later life.
