“Written with a mathematician’s eye and a poet’s heart, these poems are wide-ranging and thoughtful, with a quiet and insistent energy moving through them. The intersection of personal and world history is an on-going concern in this collection, and Martin Zarrop’s closely observed poems explore this with both tenderness and humour.” Kim Moore
In this long awaited debut collection following an award wining pamphlet (No Theory of Everything) Martin Zarrop combines quiet imagery and a reflective tone to powerful affect. Meticulous observation and attention to detail is coupled with a humane sensibility; intelligent probing paired with a gentleness of spirit. These are poems to read and read again.
