Product Description


Already the book is attracting attention from leading Scottish poets, with one describing Andrew as “part of a significant group of younger poets who have digested the grandeur and diversity of the preceding generations of Scottish poets”. (Linlithgow Gazette)


The Ambulance Box is a timely reminder of the range and power of the lyric – from philosophical exploration to tender and intimate elegies. This is a powerful debut, and Andrew Philip's is a significant new voice. (Michael Symmons Roberts)

For the record I count myself in the not-very-familiar-with-poetry category, but enjoy dipping my toes from time to time. I very much enjoyed this poetry collection. A mix of light and dense styles, I'll go back and forth to dip into this book and get something new each time. Beautiful themes of grief and comments on human nature. Highly recommended.
