Jacob Polley already has a formidable reputation as one of the sharpest and most unusual new voices to have appeared on the scene in many years. Now, with the publication of his first collection, The Brink, readers will have their first opportunity to see his remarkable transforming imagination in action, where a jar of honey is '... the sun, all flesh and no bones / but for the floating knuckle / of honeycomb / attesting to the nature of the struggle', and a gull's hovering is 'suddenly akin / to dangling on a coat hook / by the back of a coat you're still in'.
