From the publisher

Apostasy is a  remarkable new collection of fourteen poems by John Burnside, one of the UK’s foremost poets. A child struggles to reconcile a received Catholic world-view with a more instinctive and passionate paganism. A deep connection with the natural world offers an imaginative and spiritual freedom.

‘For my money, John Burnside is by far the best British poet alive.’ – Cressida Connolly, The Spectator
