Daniel Sluman’s third collection, single window, is a hybrid memoir of poetry and images.
One an amputee with chronic pain, the other suffering from Crohn’s Disease and Fibromyalgia, Daniel Sluman and his wife Emily found the year of 2016 almost untenable. Unable to safely navigate the stairs to bed, they spent 24 hours a day together on their sofa, isolated from society except for a single window, where they watched the world moving around them.
An uncompromising and starkly-realised sequence of poems in the form of a journal, documenting the realities of disabled people living in Tory Britain. A precise, hyper-confessional fusion of poetry and photography, exploring intimacy and unconditional love as well as isolation and confinement, revealing a glimpse into a world that most people will otherwise never see.
