About this product
- DescriptionCompleting the author's cycle of family poems, this book is at once intense and harmonic, playful with language, and rich with self-awareness and sense of irony. The opening poem, with its sequence of fearsome images of war, serves as a prelude to poems of home in which humour, anger, and compassion sing together with lyric energy.
