‘Spindrift is suffused with candour, delicacy and intelligence’ — Poetry Book Society.
Vona Groarke's fifth collection slips between the 'away' of America or England, and the West of Ireland or the remembered 'inland fields' of home. The poems offer gorgeous bits and pieces of the observed world: the sound a scissors makes; a drop of rain on a blouse; the flare-up of a mobile phone. Each pinpoints more expansive concerns where the intensely noticed detail blooms in significance. Vona will read from this and other collections.
