Mandelstam Variations

David Morley

Mandelstam Variations

We regret that this title is completely out of stock and no longer available. "David Morley has written a novel as multitudinous and as tragic as those of the Russian masters, but it is a novel about a poet in the very worst of modern times, so he has stripped away the prose. Extremis becomes essence." Les Murray

Crossing Point

Myra Schneider

Crossing Point

Myra Schneider writes, "The overall theme [of this collection] is women. 'Mother and Daughter', the core sequence... recreates the life of my grandmother and the earlier life of my mother, drawing on information my mother gave me... A shorter sequence looks at the life of my mother-in-law, a refugee, and the circumstances which shaped her life.

Spectrum-Shift

Isobel Thrilling

Spectrum-Shift

Isobel Thrilling's work is characterised by free verse, an extreme economy of language and piercing moments of insight. There are poems here which deal uncompromisingly with illness, loss and family relationships. Others set the human in a wider evolutionary context. Some are the expression of the sheer joy of living. Whatever the subject, the dedication and craftsmanship of a highly individual artist are always very much to the fore.
