Regular price Sale price $32.00 SGD

Maurice Riordan's keenly anticipated new collection continues his agile exploration of time, both in its depredations and rewards, while also bringing a sceptical, enquiring intelligence to bear on the anxieties and vanities of our age. Here we have disquieting songs of a mutable self; a projected online deathbed confession; the soul haranguing the body; while encounters with ghostly feet and tongues of fire consort with riffs on Baudelaire, Rilke and Old English. These poems pulse with mischief and macabre humour, making for a pungent and haunting read.

With this book, Riordan - a poet whose subtle, rippling influence is felt by all in his wake - affirms the Guardian's assessment of The Water Stealer (2013) as 'strong, wise and enduring'.
