About the book
Girl on fire is the first published poetry collection of Emma Stace Darling.
This book describes part of Emma’s experiences of life as an artist. Singing opera, acting, writing, painting and performance art are translated here into a diverse, exhilarating, completely captivating journey.
Being charismatic, natural funny, warm, sharp, and highly sensitive will never exclude their evil twins, and Emma describes her equal amounts of exquisite physical and emotional pain here with the same fearless candour as her sometimes in your face (and often dark) limericks.
