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.

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
