First full collection from winner of the 2009 Cinnamon Press Poetry Award.

"Anne Caldwell is a poet of tremendous variety but she writes with equal sensuality and careful craft about personal experience or the worlds of politics, art and literature. Her characters speak with glittering conviction whether they are one of the four and twenty blackbirds, Robinson Crusoe or a woman living under water. These are poems unafraid to look into the dark corners of real life and find beauty in what is hidden there... Anne Caldwell’s wonderfully sensual language and the sheer, glorious physicality of her poems transform the world for the reader so that we may revel in life’s experiences and travel more hopefully than before."
Alicia Stubbersfield

"Anne Caldwell’s poems deal passionately with grief and birth, love - and lobsters. They are intensely alive, flighty as young animals; powerful and varied as the sea."
Alison Brackenbury
