The Edge of the Screen

Joel Lane

The Edge of the Screen

"A powerful and well-integrated collection of poems whose level tone and careful construction are all the more effective in conveying moments and incidents of desperation, pain, broken or uncertain relationships, hysterias just controlled... Not a book for your comfort - but there is much here that you will not easily forget. This is indeed poetry on the edge..." Edwin Morgan

At the Skin Resort

James Sutherland-Smith

At the Skin Resort

James Sutherland-Smith's first full collection of poetry for almost twenty years draws on his perceptions of Eastern Europe in the years following the collapse of communism. In At the Skin Resort, he registers his own relationship with a world which has emerged not so much from pure nightmare, but from a fitful sleep where fearful dreams were succeeded by moments of clarity or utter blankness. In the cold light of day, memory of those past times is difficult to recapture with any sense of certainty.

The Wanderer's Prayer & The Travel Log of Sofa Joe

Andy Brown

The Wanderer's Prayer & The Travel Log of Sofa Joe

"These poems dazzle with their inventiveness of form and intoxicate with their vivid evocation of place. India comes alive all around us as Brown journeys down river, up mountain and into holy places. Sensual, contemplative and witty, this is travel poetry at its freshest. A delight." Henry Shukman

Frontwards in a Backwards Movie

Ken Smith

Frontwards in a Backwards Movie

Ken Smith wanted to write a novel, so the story goes, but he couldn't make up his mind which novel, so he decided instead to write a chapter from each novel. But the chapters turned out to be paragraphs, and the paragraphs to be more like poems - and so this beautiful collection of twenty-one poetic fragments in prose came into existence.

Another Nation

Michael O'Loughlin

The Glass Enclosure

Ian Pople

The Glass Enclosure

This is Ian Pople's first collection. His poems illustrate perfectly a mature use of language. An adept use of imagery and form are used as the vehicle to address his - and the readers' - conflict between self and the universal diaspora. Pople touches the raw nerve of cultural alienation.
