A collection about love, loss, secrets and mistaken identity. These searching poems reveal the many ways people hide from each other and from themselves. They show how appearances are deceptive, and how many faces we make up in one face. Unpeeling the mask, she confronts her own past and her fears: meeting her father for the first time in Nigeria, and ending a long-term relationship. Masks are about masquerade, camouflage, trickery, hypocrisy and stealth.
