Selima Hill's latest collection, "The Hat", is a disturbing portrayal of a woman's struggle to regain her identity. Her story emerges through a series of short poems, often related to animals: how she is preyed upon and betrayed, misunderstood, compromised and not allowed to be herself. Like all of Selima Hill's books, "The Hat" charts extreme experience with a dazzling excess', with dark humour and surprising combinations of homely and outlandish. "The Hat" is published at the same time Selima Hill's "Gloria: Selected Poems", which draws on ten previous collections.
