"Carole Satyamurti’s poems look to be stations on a road map of psychological discoveries, sometimes personal, sometimes objective and scientific. Her best poems are not so much confessions as meditations."
Anne Stevenson, The London Magazine
"Her unobtrusive approach is deceptive – these poems have unexpected stings in their tails."
Carole Satyamurti is a poet and sociologist who lives and works in London. She won the National Poetry Competition in 1986, and a Cholmondeley Award in 2000. This is her first new collection since Stitching the Dark: New & Selected Poems (Bloodaxe, 2005), which drew on her previous collections Broken Moon (1987), Changing the Subject (1990), Striking Distance (1994) and Love and Variations (2000). Her translation from the Sanskrit epic the Mahabharata is forthcoming from Norton.
