Jodie Hollander reads from her debut full-length collection My Dark Horses.

Set against the charms and vicissitudes of growing up in a family of musicians, it follows the story of a daughter's maturing relationship with her mother. Interspersed with versions of Rimbaud, and always alert to the surreal comedy of the human condition, these poems chart a complex journey towards familial understanding and reconciliation. Open reading follows.
