Standard Twin Fantasy is a pamphlet of poems by Sam Riviere. We encounter in these pictures a vast, technical vocabulary. The girls faces indicate minds that seem oddly completed. We might fabricate a story of how their images appeared before us: this seduction begins, like all seductions, with a wound.

Sam Riviere studied at the Norwich School of Art and Design, and holds a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing from UEA. He is the author of 81 Austerities (Faber & Faber, 2012), which won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection, and After Fame (Faber & Faber, 2020). He was a recipient of a 2009 Eric Gregory Award. He also founded If a Leaf Falls Press.

This book was originally published in the United Kingdom in 2014 by Egg Box Publishing as a limited edition of 300 print copies.
