An extraordinarily successful collaboration between the Irish poet, Paul Muldoon and the acclaimed Scottish photographer, Norman McBeath, in which there's an uncanny relationship between word and black-and-white image. Although a McBeath photograph (of a statue of Apollo wrapped in polythene) is directly invoked in one poem, much of the success of this beautifully produced book has to do with indirection and evocation. It's as if this book presents us with a distinctly new genre - photoetry. ""A collaboration with the talented Scottish photographer McBeath, whose black-and-white images suit the bitter, brilliant ironies in Muldoon's new poems. . . will shock and delight and whet transatlantic appetites."" Publishers Weekly """"Muldoon's unrivaled technical skill, on full display in Plan B, creates a deeply satisfying energy.""""-Harvard Review Online, April 2010
