Today, the new book by Tracey West, ‘Poetry of Divorce: for Women’ has launched in paperback and Kindle e-book, across the globe.
It is the product of the tricky divorce endured by the author, but by no means an embittered read. She discovered that writing poetry was one of her coping mechanisms for getting through it, then she dived head first into a world of poetic fiction.
The end result is a 138 page book covering a wide range of divorce based situations, with an eye catching range of black and white photography to accompany every poem, also taken by the author.
Topics covered include filthy habits, leading up to leaving, solicitors, getting back into the saddle again, sex and other social experiments and new life.
The book is available in the UK, the US, throughout Europe, in Japan, even Australia and Tracey hopes it will go a long way towards encouraging women to pick up a pen and notepad to start writing out their dark days, rather than relying on less healthy solutions.
She isn’t afraid to admit she had depression and anxiety at times and sought medical assistance to help her get through it. Tracey also hopes that her comfortable admission of this will entice others to stamp out the stigma that often goes with a confession of this sort.
‘There are lots of solutions available to help you get through the trauma of divorce and early separation and if you think you are suffering, your doctor is the best place to start’, Tracey explains.
