About this product
- DescriptionThis title is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. Much of the material in Julian Turner's third collection works under malign influence, which comes most often from the hand of Man, but is also haunted by elements, spirits and other forces that seem beyond our control. This compelling book also celebrates human ingenuity and heroism in the face of such weighty opponents and laments our inclination to blame others for our misfortune and unhappiness. Time and memory, the transitory nature of human remains from the earliest man-made monuments, how nature suffers from man-made depredations, the strange states of mind that arise from extreme experience - all of these contribute to this book's rich and multi-layered insight into the human condition.
- Author BiographyJulian Turner's previous books are 'Crossing the Outskirts' - a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and shortlisted for the Forward Prize best first collection in 2002 - and 'Orphan Sites' (2006). He was born in Cheadle Hulme, near Manchester, in 1955 and was educated at New College, Oxford and Goldsmith's, London. He lives with his partner in Otley, West Yorkshire, and works as a writer and counsellor.
