How to Cure a Ghost explores a young woman’s journey from self-loathing to self-acceptance, and deserves to be as widely read as possible. Roisin's] writing is intensely vulnerable and through revealing her own experience she reflects so many others.

Some of these poems are quite lovely, and I appreciate the poem about The Keepers, as my own family has suffered sexual abuse from the Catholic Church, but rather than rising above such stereotypes she embraces them, covering her contempt for another culture by claiming discrimination against her own.

I can't rate a life, and although I understood and resonated with some of the poems, or some bits of them, they don't speak about my own experiences. I would highly recommend this collection to any fans of poetry , or just if you want a collection as a starting point i would recommend this one too.

n’s poetry book is a collection of her thoughts as a young, queer, Muslim femme navigating the difficulties of her intersectionality. I feel that if this were more condensed, without the filler tumblr-esque poetry, it would be a true gem.I’m a feminist, but I’m a white feminist, and I’m very aware of the privilege which comes with that. The “ghost” she attempts to cure stands for many things: white supremacy, her mother, the patriarchy, Islamophobia, unkindness, her ancestors… Ultimately, it’s a book about survival, dedicated to survivors.

There is no doubt however that the poems in How to Cure a Ghost are very personal to the author and came from the heart.

Simultaneously, this compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between Róisín and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities. I really hate being so judgmental about poetry because I’m sure this really means something to the poet, but it’s so disheartening to read poetry like this that has no understanding or appreciation of form or rhythm. It explores shame, ancestral trauma and violence—weaving in Róisin’s personal experience of abuse at the hands of her mother, while also being trapped in a body, time and era where she’s being forced to confront the many things that have haunted her. And 400,000 women were raped ( they were not known and never will be known … r emember us, like you’d remember white death).
