    The poems in this book transform everyday experiences into memorable moments, with warmth, humour and well observed, carefully chosen details. But do not be deceived by Daniel Dwyran's easy going style. Every so often, flashes of brilliant poignancy and emotion leap from the page. "World Cup Widow", told in a woman's voice, is heartbreaking in its simplicity. And "Here I Am Treading Water" examines the overwhelming nature of love. This is a poet whose voice rises from the page, whose life experiences are laid bare for us to share. These are poems which include the reader in their finely observed variety and enrich and entertain in equal measure.

    Often the better compilations will have a theme or big idea, one which the reader is drawn to consciously or otherwise. After all, it helps to give meaning to the whole – it justifies the inclusion and ordering of content. I read ‘Mist from the Menai’ in one sitting before returning to several of my favourites, and it turned out to be an utterly pleasurable afternoon. A sense of movement/dislocation prevails: the gritty urban sprawl of Manchester (and Bristol), but also rural idylls which prove somehow unfulfilling – the yuppified Truro, for example. The poems are often fast-paced and jokey but there are quieter moments too. The standout of standouts is ‘Rosy Lee for me’ which captures the intimacy of making a good brew! Brilliant!
