Asterisk* is a sequence of poems inspired by Shandy Hall, the extraordinary house in Coxwold that was once home to the writer Laurence Sterne. The book is a personal interpretation of things Shandean, combined with photographs of the house and its garden.

"The poems and photographs in this unique collection are numinous and sharp with surprise and pleasure. Paul Munden's poems provide a way of re-seeing and re-shaping spaces; of re-imagining and revising the history and inhabitants of a place; and of playing with time, image and the music of language in styles that beguile and delight. I enjoyed this book immensely. It is a gift to any reader who values attentive, playful, wide-awake art."
David Morley

With photographs by Marion Frith.
