Sodium 136 – Carole Bromley

Kate Clanchy’s response to Carole Bromley’s pamphlet, Sodium 136, recently published by Calder Valley Poetry, and available through the following link –

‘Most of us, now, experience a passage of time in hospital, either as patient or carer, and the extreme, debilitating, animal emotions that go with such closeness to mortality. We tend, though, when we return to our lives, to say little about what we have seen, perhaps because is too dark to bear. Sodium 136 opens up one of these purgatorial journeys with honesty, unsparing clarity, and scalpel like precision. This book sheds light on our dark places. I will remember it for a long time.’
