This is a collection of poetry, beginning with shorter poems and continuing with two longer poems, both concerned with the coaxing of eloquence from difficult circumstances. The first recounts the quirky memories of an old man in his 100th year. The second celebrates his recovery from a dangerous illness.
Christopher Reid is the author of a number of books of poems, including A Scattering (winner of the Costa Book of the Year Award) and The Song of Lunch (both 2009).
