Paul Muldoon's ninth collection of poems finds him working a rich vein that extends from his childhood County Armagh of the 1950s to present day New Jersey where he now lives. As gritty as they are graceful, the poems are underscored by an elegiac tone - particularly in the elegant remaking of Yeats's 'A Prayer for My Daughter' with which the book concludes.

Industry Reviews

"A marvellous book; nothing human, or inhuman, is alien to it."--Andrew Motion, "The Independent "Books of the Year "Among the few significant poets of our half-century." --Tim Kendall, "The Guardian" "Paul Muldoon is a shape-shifting Proteus to readers who try to pin him down...Those who interrogate Muldoon's poems find themselves changing shapes each time he does... authentically touched or delighted." --Richard Eder, "The New York Times Book Review" "One of the English-Speaking world's most acclaimed poets still at the top of his slippery, virtuosic game." --"Publishers Weekly"
