    Random House 2010; US$ 12.62

    Adam Thorpe's fifth collection finds purpose in the discarded, the secretive, the failed.

  • Hoddby Adam Thorpe

    Random House 2010; US$ 12.59

  • Pieces Of Lightby Adam Thorpe

    Random House 2011; US$ 9.80

    Hugh Arkwright's remote childhood in the Central African bush, and its sudden disruption, leaves him with a legacy of magic, mystery, and tragic loss.

The more he excavates his own past, the deeper he... more...

  • From The Neanderthalby Adam Thorpe

    Random House 2011; US$ 9.80

    The poems in Adam Thorpe's latest collection are concerned with the continuum between two worlds: the lived present and the felt past.
