This is a book of awakenings - to loss and renewal, to present and past and place. To dailiness, mortality and marriage. Playful or serious, colloquial or formal, they speak directly of life lived. Celebratory or elegiac, whether set in Orkney, Spain, coastal Fife or Edinburgh, Andrew Greig's poems are acts of attention, when the mind wakes up and the world snaps into focus. They invite the same pleasure in the reader.
