Atlantic


Published in July 2014 by Cinnamon Press, Atlantic is out of print and currently only available second-hand. 

This is my most intimate collection of poetry, based not upon the history of science as with Darwin’s Microscope, nor the history of medicine, as with Opera di Cera, but upon personal history, charting the push and pull of moving across the Atlantic, from New England to Old England.

Written over eight years, it is a book of mourning and of transformation.

The cover illustration is by Henrike Scholten, a skilled Dutch artist and friend whose work I’m honoured to have gracing the book.
