Power walks in dressed like your best friend, offers to pay the bills and buy the drinks. Tells you to get some sleep because they’ve got this, they’ll keep watch, stop anyone getting in. Then Power leaves in the night and clears out your house. This is where this book begins. When Power’s taken everything. How do you get it back?

“I finished Dressed As Love with tears rolling down my cheeks. There is such tenderness and fury in this extraordinary collection, that spans decades and topics- from the power of art to the love of place, from the outrage of Partygate to the joy of Eurovision. And throughout, Jess Green’s clear, precise voice doing what good poetry does best- giving voice to our heartaches and yearnings and thwarted dreams, against a backdrop of what we all know, but often struggle to voice so articulately: what it is to be a girl and a woman in a world made by and for men. A beautifully expressed call to arms that will stay with me for a very long time.” Julie Hesmondhalgh
