A timely re-issue of one of award-winning poet Don Paterson's finest collections first published to great acclaim in 1997. As Don Paterson's reputation as one of the finest contemporary poets in English continues to grow we will be actively reprinting and repromoting his work into our new Faber poetry livery. 'Whisky, trains, women and stars waltz through the book, ontologically challenged. There is a sense of unmentionable atrocities and guilts, banished - only just - offstage, often by a dismayingly bleak wit, or by unexpected gorgeousness in this savage Romantic.' Michael Hofmann

John Redmond; 'Lyrical yet austere, straight-talking but at ease with eloquence... some of the most outstanding poems published this year.' Helen Dunmore"
