Michael Brown’s poems have been widely-published in magazines such as The North, Southword and The Rialto, as well as in two pamphlets. In this debut full-length collection, we find new poems on sacrifice, transformation and territory as well as the hesitations and derailments of adult life. Brown often combines meditative intensity with a immanent sense of coalescence, something deeply human. The poems find their purchase in edgeworlds, seeming to interrogate mortality and morality in memorable, chiselled lyrics. This debut will only enhance his reputation as a terrific performer and an important new voice.
