“Paul Henry’s lyrical poems achieve perfect pitch, matching sound to sense with, seemingly a minimum of effort.” Alice Kavounas, Poetry Review.
Cut adrift by marital break-up, the poet must sort through the emotional fallout and the various ‘chattels’ left behind; a sea of characteristic props: tables, lamps, metronomes, pianos, guitars. The poet’s sons are at the heart of this collection where pathos is balanced by humour amidst the characters of a small country town.
