  • Forest Gateby Peter Akinti

    Random House 2009; US$ 18.32

    In a community where poverty is kept close and passed from one generation to the next, two teenage boys, best friends Ashvin and James, stand on top of twin tower blocks. Facing each other across the abyss of London's urban sprawl, they say their goodbyes in the final stages of a suicide pact. The boys jump together, each with a rope around his neck.... more...

  • Watering Canby Caroline Bird

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 7.26

    Caroline Bird's two earlier collections were acclaimed for their exuberant energy, surreal imagination and passion - 'a bit of a Howl for a new generation', wrote the Hudson Review. Watering Can celebrates life as an early twenty-something. The poems, writes Caroline Bird, 'contain prophetic videos, a moon colonised by bullies, weeping scholars, laughing... more...

  • Deceiving Wild Creaturesby Jeremy Over

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 7.26

    The naturalist Gilbert White is at the heart of this collection. Like him, Jeremy Over explores an ecology with meticulous acuity. His poems are 'found in the field': the beauty and oddity of the language of others is brought into sharp focus. Robert Herrick's 'sweet disorder in the dress' is subjected to a series of disrobings; a guidebook, instruction... more...

  • A to Bby Gerry McGrath

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    A to B began as a poem about a journey: it became a journey in itself, a collection that travels through emotions and places, unfolding to the rhythms of discovery and memory. Places and people reveal their secrets; fragile bonds of love link past to present. In the book's first part, an elusive pattern is glimpsed in fragments: a plane climbs into... more...

  • Trouble Came to the Turnipby Caroline Bird

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 7.26

    Following Looking Through Letterboxes, her first collection (2002), Caroline Bird was acclaimed as a vivid and precocious new talent. Trouble Came to the Turnip confirms her originality as she strikes out again in new directions, taking nothing for granted. Her poems are ferociously vital, fantastical, sometimes violent, almost always savagely humorous... more...

  • Evensongby Kenneth Steven

    SPCK 2012; US$ 13.11

    Kenneth Steven's poems are inspired first and foremost by wildscape, by the places and people of Highland Perthshire and of the Celtic west - Iona and the Hebrides. But they are inspired by faith too, by the struggle to see God in the complexities of this world's turmoil and find light in the darkness. more...

  • Jilted Cityby Patrick McGuinness

    Carcanet 2010; US$ 7.26

    The poems in Jilted City inhabit in-between-places, when a border is being crossed, a word is slipping into another language, when memory is translating loss. From Stations where the train doesn't stop' in Blue Guide', following a train journey through Belgium, toCity of Lost Walks', English versions of a dissident Romanian poet whose poetry fails... more...

  • Sound Housesby Will Eaves
