Waterstones Says

The third instalment of Lovelace’s bitingly clever feminist poetry achieves just the same remarkably acute emotional resonance as its predecessors. Focusing on the trauma of sexual assault with passionate intensity and empathic sensitivity, The Mermaid’s Voice Returns in This One will delight Lovelace’s ever growing legion of fans.

They tried to silence her once and for all, but the mermaid's voice returns in this one

Amanda Lovelace presents the mermaid's voice returns in this one - the third and final installment in her "women are some kind of magic" series, featuring a foreword from Lang Leav and 13 guest poems from leading voices in poetry such as Nikita Gill, KY Robinson, and Orion Carloto.

The mermaid is known for her siren song, luring bedroom-eyed sailors to their demise. However, beneath these misguided myths are tales of escapism and healing, which Lovelace weaves throughout this empowering collection of poetry, taking you on a journey from the sea to the stars.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a collection that lives and breathes #MeToo. Each poem isn't necessarily about sexual assault, but rather surviving sexual assault. The final in Lovelace's trilogy of poetry books "Women Are Some Kind of Magic," Lovelace poured herself into every single word of this collection." (Marie Claire)
