Product description

Review

"Intimates" is a passionate book. Its theme is ancient (the unthinkable pain of lost love) and Farish thinks hard about both pain and happiness. Much of Farish's art lies in concealment. The economy of her poems and her confidence in their means enable her to speak with convincing directness where other poets might lapse into gestures. --Sean O'Brien, Sunday Times.

Farish uses the first-person speaker with a moving immediacy - as often in the poems that address the death of her father - or deploys it with considerable inventiveness and ingenuity - Intimates is an intensely lyrical work. Farish is adept at conveying a moment of being in a handful of pared, precise images, and she can sometimes astonish with a single line. --Jane Griffiths, TLS.

A debut poetry collection by a poet whose voice is already mature, assured and at times very funny. --Claire Harman, Evening Standard.
