About this product
- DescriptionSimon Smith's fifth collection contains two long sequences: the title work, and Gravesend, which garnered the following commentary: 'The Waste Land may have been smoothed to automatic for the iPad, but Simon Smith's Gravesend makes the South-East coast of Dickens and Conrad a place worth missing connections again.'
- Author BiographySimon Smith was born in 1961 in Redruth. He worked at The Poetry Library on the fifth floor of The Royal Festival Hall from 1991-2007, and was its Librarian from 2003 until 2007. He has taught Creative Writing at the University of Kent since 2009, where he is a Senior Lecturer. His previous four collections of poetry are Fifteen Exits (Waterloo Press, 2001); Reverdy Road (2003), Mercury (2006) and London Bridge (2010).
