More About the Author

Born in Cornwall, spending most of his teenage weekends on Dartmoor, Philip Gross has a feel for wild places and ideas. He now lives in Bristol and he finds that wildness in the city too.

Philip is a well-known poet for both adults and children, and his work has never been afraid to tackle real-life issues. The Wasting Game, shortlisted for the Whitbread Poetry Award, dealt with anorexia.

Philip is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Glamorgan.

Product Description

Review

'A book of great clarity and concentration, continually themed but always lively and alert in its use of language. Gross takes us from Great Flood to subtly invoked concerns for our watery planet; this is a mature and determined book, dream-like in places, but dealing ultimately with real questions of human existence.' --- Simon Armitage, T.S. Eliot Prize judges' comment.

'Great poetry is like walking on water. In this paradoxical, humane collection, Philip Gross achieves that miracle.' --- Polly Clark, Guardian.

'Haunting, vividly imagined poems, whose fierce intelligence is gentled by the sonorous grace of the language - A considerable poetic talent offers us an elegant and subtle re-evaluation of the modern world.' --- Sarah Crown, The Guardian.
