With tragicomic bravado and psychological insight, this collection paints a turbulent portrait of a father and his family, creating a poetic sequence that has the scope of a novel and stretches the sense of what is possible in poetry. Each poem is presented as an improvisation on the theme of the father, forming a picture of a family held hostage by the mood swings and histrionics of this patriarch. Combining intense speed and surprise with moments of sudden slowness, this compilation has the flavor and intensity of a modern classic.

About the Author:

Toon Tellegen is a poet, children's book writer, and novelist. He is the author of Letters to Anyone and Everyone and The Squirrel’s Birthday and Other Parties. Judith Wilkinson is the translator of Instead of Silence.

Review:

'His [Tellegen's] complex, often surreal and always highly affecting poems exhibit an understanding of the power of the story in which the dream-like psychology, the marvellously nuanced telling of a family's malaise set him apart as an entirely distinctive voice in European poetry.' - 2011 Popescu Prize judges Sasha Dugdale and Jane Draycott.
