Short-listed for the Forward Prize for best first collection.

Bill Greenwell's first collection invites us to see the world from a new perspective. With a background in helping others to learn writing skills and having been the New Statesman's poet in residence for several years, Bill's poetry marries accessibility with a satirical humour that often bubbles away just beneath the surface. These are poems to savour: structural simplicity, moments of insight and above all the impossibility, but vital urgency of being alive.

"Fresh, startling, inventive, entertaining… There’s not a boring note here… You never know where Greenwell’s going next."
U A Fanthorpe & R V Bailey

"Bill Greenwell does things with language you didn’t know were possible…"
Selima Hill

"A verbal magician working with the precision and economy of a master cartographer… The writing is witty and tender, delicate and tough. It consistently charms us out of the every-day…"
Carol Rumens
