SUMMARY: 42 Degrees of Truth is also a powerful window into the mindset of the 21st century – the frustrations of sexism, the burdens of the monotonous family life, and the futility of the new All-What-I-Am culture.

As to be expected from Victoria Ray, the poems are hilarious, sharp, and eye-opening, with a touch of dark melancholy.

Poetry fans looking for something edgy and original would do well to pick up a copy of 42 Degrees of Truth: Unicorn. An eclectic mix of poetic gems Victoria Ray draws on the vastness of social commentary to introduce us to her distinctive brand of eclectic prose as she perfectly frames thought-provoking anecdotes in powerful and thought-provoking stanzas. 

With lines like “Hunted in the darkness Between paralyzed dreams And overwhelmed wishes. Staring at your own reflection” from Nothing Falls To Earth And Dies to powerfully visual poems like Song Of The Man-ic she swings between the darkly introspective and the sentimental whilst comfortably avoiding any hint of cliché.
