The brilliant new collection from the prize-winning poet and renowned classicist A New Statesman / Observer Book of the Year
A literary event: a follow-up to the internationally acclaimed poetry best-seller Autobiography of Red (‘Amazing’ – Alice Munro) that takes its mythic boy-hero into the twenty-first century to tell a story all its own of love, loss, and the power of memory. Shortlisted for the 2013 T.S. Eliot Prize.
A stunning new collection from the first woman to win the T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry.
