Hard Summer - Francisca Matos

Hard Summer - Francisca Matos


Set in Lisbon and its suburbs, Hard Summer is a collection of poems exploring the intricacies of memory and its complex relationship to place. Written as a fragmented memoir, the poems investigate what it means to reconcile the loss and joy of growing up, leaning on cinematic perspective and language to honour a moment in time. Hard Summer looks at the interaction between truth, feeling and memory, bringing the reader along through dull summer days and cyclical conversations, to celebratory moments and the solemn walk home.
