Fifth collection from acclaimed poet, non-fiction writer and journalist Winner of the Dylan Thomas Prize Winner of Poetry Digest’s Bard of the Year Award Second prize winner in 2001 National Poetry Competition.

Characterised by wry wit, delightful humour and an extraordinary grasp of the intricacies of language, the fifth poetry collection from acclaimed poet, biographer and journalist, Ann Drysdale, displays all the skills of an assured and deeply humane writer. Her ability to handle poignant subjects with emotional acuity, but not a trace of sentimentality, is matched by her astute intelligence and sharp eye; her feeling for form is matched by the precision and dexterity with which she uses language whether to entertain, delight or move her readers. Varied, immediate and accomplished, this is poetry that speaks to a wide audience.
