From London Zoo to an Essex village and the Arctic Circle, Greenlaw explores questions of place - the childhood landscapes we leave behind, those we travel towards, and those like 'Minsk' which we believe to be missing from our lives. Greenlaw's restless, inquisitive tone builds to make Minsk a hypnotic collection from one of the leading poets of her generation.

Industry Reviews

UK PRAISE FOR LAVINIA GREENLAW"Everything Greenlaw touches glitters and resonates, her discipline and skill allowing her to be serious, soulful, knockabout, funny and down-right strange in the course of a few lines."-VOGUE"Her work is . . . lingeringly memorable for the way it combines an excited way of thinking with a calm way of looking." -ANDREW MOTION, THE OBSERVER
