This debut collection is a fascinating exploration of all things night-time, from taking the dog out to revisiting Sleeping Beauty, from night as a time of loss, grief and endings to a time of recuperation, of moving back towards the light. The poems are supported throughout by Kemp’s lyrical sensibility, and tempered by flashes of wit and inventive humour.

Will Kemp studied at Cambridge and UEA, then travelled throughout Asia and South America before working as an environmental consultant in Holland, Canada and New Zealand. Since becoming runner-up in the Keats-Shelley Prize 2006, he has had over fifty poems published, including in the Guardian and the recent Cinnamon Press anthologies Storm at Galesburg (2009) and Feeding the Cat (2011), and shortlisted in various national journals and competitions.
