A new sequence of startling, haunting poems by the award-winning poet, novelist and librettist, David Harsent.
These are no guardian angels. They are dangerous, feral. They arrive uninvited, unrefusable and each visceral encounter demands an existential reckoning, an unflinching honesty. They are love’s arbiters, though themselves loveless.
‘David Harsent is a unique mix of the nervily cerebral and the visionary, the deeply lyrical and the sourly vernacular, with a nice top-spin of craziness in imagery and a fantastic ear.’
