From the publisher

This anthology of contemporary British prose poetry is the first of its kind in the UK. It celebrates prose poetry being written by writers such as George Szirtes, Pascale Petit, Carrie Etter, Luke Kennard, Andy Brown, Anthony Rudolf and Richard Gwyn, Linda Black and Kate North as well as new voices. The editor has chosen prose poems that have a distinctly unfussy but refreshingly original way of using the form. Closer to short prose in their economical use of storytelling, but expertly using sounds, tones, twists and rhythms of poetry, these pieces exemplify the craftwork involved in the form.
