Wright, Patrick (2017). Nullaby. Lorgnette series. London: Eyewear Publishing.



Nullaby explores themes such as psychodrama in the domestic space, the clandestine realities of love, and fears and anxieties in a modern relationship; the reflections on which most often occur in liminal states between sleep and waking or as a result of being kept awake at night (hence the title, which suggests an anti-lullaby). Written in the half-light of the bedroom, family taboos come to the surface, past, present and future collide, and a sense of threat lingers throughout from apprehensions of madness, even in the midst of inspiration and joy, to prophetic visions of illness and bereavement.
