She has a breathtaking gift for covering a huge amount of ground in a single poem. Fracture Clinic, about meeting her birth parents, is, at only 10 couplets long, as powerful as a memoir.

Synopsis

A welcome selection from one of the most original and accomplished poets of her generation, described as "the heiress of Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman." Spanning four collections, and a body of work that is largely out of print, this is the perfect introduction to a formidable poet of extraordinary power. Sarah's poems have been praised by Carol Ann Duffy, John Burnside, Mark Doty, Carol Shields, Selima Hill, Michael Donaghy, and Adam Phillips.
