Music Our Bodies Can’t Hold

Andy Jackson

‘Music Our Bodies Can’t Hold is a book of masks, thudding hearts, lovers, doctors, bodies and their question marks; speaking beyond places where ‘the only human forms/ are all the same’, Andy Jackson’s angular ventriloquisms are canny, fearless inventions.‘ - Dan Disney

'Andy Jackson’s sensitive portraits of people living with Marfan Syndrome are as generous as they are compelling … Music Our Bodies Can’t Hold invites us all to become thoughtful about difference. It is a rare and important collection of poems.’ - Pam Brown

Each of these poems is a portrait of someone with or reputed to have had Marfan Syndrome. Many of the poems emerge out of personal interviews, while others are portraits of public figures: Abraham Lincoln, Akhenaten, Mary Queen of Scots , Edith Sitwell, Niccolo Paganini, John Tavener, Sergei Rachmaninov, and Robert Johnson, among others.
