About this book:

The History of Intimacy is the fourth collection by award-winning poet Gabeba Baderoon. Breathtaking intimacies and private hurts are crafted into lyrical form - in poems on desiring what is furthest from you, memories of a midnight swim, how children work out the laws of existence, the stakes of speaking a forbid­den word, elegies to a jazz prodigy and a beloved poet, and how not to be alone.
