The poems have the feeling of work that has been pared down from something much larger, until they resemble netsuke.

Synopsis

Vivid, funny, moving, and full of awe about nature and the human world, this poetry collection is an exciting debut by a young Scottish poet, William Letford. Drawing from the poet's own experiences—traveling, falling in and out of love, and working—as well as from popular speech, these poems display a sure lyric instinct and both a Scottish and universal appeal.
