This is Simon Perril’s first full-length collection. Perril reinvents domestic idylls, epithalamia and combines these with poems on power, perception and ontology. Savvy, funny and littered with raids on literature, high art and pop culture, this book shows Perril as one of the most promising voices of the British new wave.
‘Glimpses of first occasionally familiar prospects, through echoes, to a new confident view. Scanning the manuscript a second time, trains of thought passed through different features; but the landscape still interested. A collection well worth reading: ‘sound / thinks for me /when nothing / changes’.’ —Tom Raworth
‘Simon Perril’s laconic, insightful, tender life-studies return things to their own status and pneuma. Wiry and shrewd far beyond the fateful, intricate living out of our wary reverence of citizenship, the entire while coalescing our ceaseless invisible struggles, imagination, torsion of independence and agents of entropy. A beautiful book for holographic readers. Let it heap.’ —Lissa Wolsak
