  • The Sleepwalker at Seaby Kelly Grovier

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    The poems in The Sleepwalker at Sea tread a fluid line between dream and wakefulness, memory and loss, presence and longing.

Linked by their restless displacement, pacing haunted spaces, these are poems... more...

  • The Storm Houseby Tim Liardet

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    In 2006 Tim Liardet?s brother died in mysterious circumstances. The Storm House is a book-length elegy that is both grief-fugue and exploration of family psychodrama.
