Product description


'Julian Turner's poetry achieves that alchemy of mind, heart and ear that distinguishes the gold standard in contemporary British poetry'Ian Duhig


Julian Turner's 'Crossing the Outskirts' was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and was shortlisted for the Forward Prize best first collection. In his second book he explores his familiar themes of identity and loss, and new, more personal ones - the way the degradation of the environment touches on his experience, the fragility of life and the ambiguous allure of death. This collection marks a development in his strong technique and gives us poems that are comic, elegiac and profound by turns.
