Publisher Description

This substantial new collection by award-winning poet Brian Turner develops themes characteristic of his poetry. Love poems and elegies keep company with poems of satire, protest and metaphysical speculation. The book concludes with 'Post-operative', a raw and risky sequence written in the wake of major surgery. Ultimately, everything helps to map the contours of love, loss and longing that form the map of the human heart.

Review
“Beneath the wit, the no-nonsense honesty, the rigorous clarity of sense, and the sinewy rhythmic energy of the poems' surfaces runs the craft of a sophisticated, confident, and well-read poet.” —“Oxford Companion”
