Product Description

Review

Dixon's gift is in the presentation of such a palpable, earthy presence and its accordant pathos of memory or displacement. -- James Tink, PN Review

Isobel Dixon portrays people and places, and a sense of displacement, in sensuous yet meticulous detail. -- Stewart Conn

She is looking back to something lost, even as she continues to engage in the history of the land where she was born. -- Clive James

About the Author

Isobel Dixon has been described by Clive James as being 'born with the gift of lyricism as natural speech' and by J M Coetzee as 'a poet confident in her mastery of her medium.' Her poems have appeared in publications like The Paris Review, The Guardian, Penguin's Poems for Love and The Forward Book of Poetry. Salt published A Fold in the Map in 2007. www.isobeldixon.com

Format: Hardcover
Having read the poems I then had the pleasure of seeing the poet perform a selection.
Dixon has a haunting, memorable turn of phrase and I found reading several of them made me quite emotional. At times nostalgic, at times bitter-sweet, the overall tone is very affecting.
The two parts of the collection recall different events we can all relate to - leaving home, and in this case your home country, and the passing of a much-loved parent.
These poems can be read over and over whilst still finding new meaning every time.

I fell into this collection and didn't want to resurface. The poems of homage to her father and the lush descriptions of the natural world captivated me and held me in their thrall.
