About this title


A quiet but fast-changing corner of Scotland is tenderly documented in this collection that sets family, lovers, and geographical and dynastic time against the speed of modernity. The theme of a modern territory superimposed onto a much older one is developed as the poetry elegizes the ancient landscape of Renfrewshire. The collection is also sensitive to the nuances of family relationships and has an uncanny evocation of a child’s developing perspective of friends, siblings, and parents. Ultimately, this compilation reclaims suburbia as a place of unexpected poetry and even beauty.

About the Author:

Richard Price is head of the Modern British Collections at the British Library in London. He is the founder of the magazines Gairfish and Southfields and cofounder of Vennel Press.
