About this title


Playing House, the debut collection of poetry from Katherine Stansfield, features a concise wit, a distinct voice, and an unsettling view of the domestic with ordinary subjects viewed through the author’s satirical yet sympathetic eye. John Lennon’s tooth, an imaginary Canada, bees in Rhode Island, jetlag, and office politics are all peculiar grist to this author’s mill. She presents both historical subjects, such as Captain Scott of the Antarctic, and common objects, such as household bleach, with a skewed perspective, adding humor, drama, and a quietly distinctive pathos.

About the Author:

Katherine Stansfield is a writer and a professor of creative writing at University of Aberystwyth. She is the author of the novel The Visitor and her own poetry has appeared in numerous publications, including the James Dickey Review, Poetry Cornwall, and Poetry Wales.
