Circus-Apprentice

Katherine Gallagher

Circus-Apprentice

In her new collection, Katherine Gallagher draws on a rich inheritance from her different worlds: Australia, Britain - particularly London - and France. Her subject matter ranges widely: travel, exile, returning, change, nature, war, family, illness, love, loss, death and childhood experiences, always rooted in a passionate sense of discovery and attention to place. She juxtaposes a mix of colloquial and more formal verse-styles to evoke immediacy and feeling with impressive clarity and freshness of voice. Lyrical and politically-tuned, her poems range between moments of deep feeling and satire, laced with an often wry humour veering towards the surreal.

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

Archie Markham
