Product description

Review

NIGH-NO-PLACE is a revelation: jaunty, energetic, iconoclastic - even devil-may-care...she is a remarkably original poet near the beginning of what is obviously going to be a distinguished career. --Andrew Motion, judge's comment on the T.S. Eliot Prize

A zestful poet of the road, a beat poet of the upper latitudes, Jen Hadfield conjures poems and prose-poems of great spirit and imaginative daring from the northern landscapes. Lively, youthful and full of the joy of language. --Kathleen Jamie

Onomatopoeia, alliteration, rhyme and a smattering of Shetland dialect supply Hadfield's world with a rackety music - claws on tarmac, a rock-chip hitting a windscreen, a waterproof crackling "like a roasting rack of lamb" - which she orchestrates with a variety of forms including prose poems, incantations, spells and a prayer... When much contemporary poetry has about it a whiff of the coterie, Hadfield's refreshing voice carries all the way from the top of Scotland to blow some of the dust off British verse. --Stephen Knight, Independent

About the Author

Jen Hadfield lives on Shetland where she works as a poet, writing tutor, artist and sometimes shop assistant. Her first collection ALMANACS (Bloodaxe Books, 2005) won an Eric Gregory Award from the Society of Authors, which enabled her to begin writing NIGH-NO-PLACE in Canada. She recently received a Dewar Award to produce a solo exhibition of Shetland ex-votos in the style of sacred Mexican folk art, incorporating rubrics of very short fiction. She plays the mandolin and banjo-mandolin badly. She won the T.S. Eliot Prize for her second collection, NIGH-NO-PLACE (Bloodaxe Books, 2008), which was also a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Poetry in 2008.
