Poems from the Madhouse/Jeffs, Sandy/Paper/1876756349/S049-A2
surrounded by the swirling nothingness of chaos,
with the indignant idiocy of haze and alienation,
where perception becomes a burden
and where the burden becomes the loss of perception
"The language challenges her with fifty names for madness, writing of a life of vigilance and struggle, she enlarges our understanding of human capacity. These repeated acts of courage, Sandy Jeffs' poems, 'toil to make a harmony of disorder'." - Judith Rodriguez.
"This is disturbing but quite wonderful poetry, because of its clarity, its humour, its imagery, and the insights it gives us into being human, being mad, being sane. I read and read - and was profoundly moved. I delighted in it as poetry; I was touched by its honesty, courage and vulnerability." - Anne Deveson.
