In this long-awaited debut collection Sheila Wild matches perfect craft with piercing observation. The language is elegant, delicate, but the effect is powerful.
Exquisite images and a considered tone are brought to bear on loss, grief and indignity, on the transience and susceptibilities of life whilst precise and compassionate observation of the natural world is used to great effect. Mature, balanced and humane, this is an exceptional debut.
