Tamar Yoseloff’s third collection combines poignant, sensual and evocative poems with the voyeuristic intensity of an internal émigré. Whether she is observing coastal resorts out of season, lovers in a restaurant or disparate train journeys, she captures the bittersweet isolation of the lyric moment. Her characteristically painterly eye for colour, tone and form is balanced with erotic encounters as well as powerful narratives exploring loss, threat and betrayal.
‘Tamar Yoseloff’s Fetch is a delicate book of haunting strength, of strangeness uncontained. These poems are irresistible.’ —Alison Brackenbury
‘These are dark poems in the best sense of the word, edgy, unnerving, but glittering, too. Tamar Yoseloff can make a visit to the dentist or a lamb curry sexy and sinister. I've followed her career from the beginning; Fetch is her most ambitious book yet, and her best.’ —Matthew Francis
‘These compressed and vivid poems have a mind and a music all their own. Tamar Yoseloff is emerging as one of the best poets of her generation.’ —Thomas Lux
