Product Description

Review

'There's a fair bit of lying around on hillsides and tramping around harbours and, of course, star-gazing. A clever, lyrical debut'
--Independent on Sunday

`Another important debut was Rachel Boast's Sidereal (Picador, £8.99). Her quietly assured verse demonstrates its real sophistication in the intelligence of its commentary. To put it another way, she says such interesting things that you want to know what comes next.' --Independent

`Her quietly assured verse demonstrates its real sophistication in the intelligence of its commentary. To put it another way, she says such interesting things that you want to know what comes next.' --Independent

`Lyrical, lilting, full of rainfall and starlight (the title refers to the motion of constellations across the heavens), it is nevertheless refreshingly rigorous: curious, questioning, and shot through with mordant humour. Expect a great deal more from her in years to come.' --Guardian

About the Author

Format: Paperback
ethereal pleasure.I enjoyed reading this collection whilst on a weeks holiday.
the time is worth investing.

You'll spend the hours considering all the sounds
Rain could be against the fabric of the tent:
the tuning of the radio, the static of a zillion midges
Hard applause,crumpled foil, the barking of a silver dog
Who wants sometimes just to stop and not have to go on.

there is mystery in this collection without losing the reader.

thank you Racheal.
