"Jem Poster works rich veins of love and loss. His poetry is lit up by sensuousness, realism, and a bold, wide-ranging intelligence. There's plenty of art, but never any pretension. These poems speak directly to the human heart, and offer a deepening pleasure with every reading."
Jem Poster originally worked as an archaeologist, and now directs the
Creative Writing diploma at Oxford University's Department for Continuing Education.
