This collection showcases imagination and
lyricism, and confessional landscapes from the boundaries between culture and nature, mundane and divine, the everyday and the extraordinary.
The volume brings together themes ancient and modern, Scottish and English, Asian and European, and contains the fruits of ten years spent
living in Asia, including intensely personal poems about the writer’s family, all handled with great tactile strength, resourcefulness and a unique,
poetic power. The result is a genuinely new voice, with a style and spirit seldom heard in British poetry for decades.

member of the Translators Association of the Society of Authors, he has published translations from Japanese and Romanian, and is also an
