Publisher's Synopsis

Here is a poet who has learned how to be clear and mysterious at the same time. Another pleasure offered here is the way the poems guide us through themselves, as good poems should, one solid line after another. A truly exceptional gathering. - Billy Collins

I m always listening out for a new poet who can take the deceptively effortless, witty yet ultimately serious chops of the New York School, make it work for this generation and bring the whole thing in to land just outside a British city, losing nothing in transit. And God it s been worth the wait. This is a poetry of exquisite timing, with some of the most satisfying last lines I ve ever read. Yates can take an everyday domestic detail and make it sparkle with the mystery of a Raedecker painting. - Luke Kennard
