YOUR ONE STOP RESOURCE ON BOOKS ABOUT GAMES

IF ALL THE WORLD AND LOVE WERE YOUNG

Stephen Sexton



 

A book about grief told through poems. The author ties his mother's illness and her passing to the levels of his favourite game, Super Mario World. How the speaker of these poems can't see the cactus wandering about Yoshi’s Island without thinking of needles and chemotherapy. How they can’t enter a ghost house without thinking about their own house, lonely and haunted. Each stage of the game reminiscent of an emotion or memory. An amazing piece of writing.
