The Feel-Good Movie of the Year

Luke Wright

"Luke Wright is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist."

Carl Barât
published in a deluxe paperback with french flaps

Divorced, and perhaps a little bruised, Luke Wright journeys off the sunken roads of southern England and into himself, pursued by murderous swans, empty car seats and his father’s skeleton clocks.

Both brazen and elegiac, these poems pull on the ‘tidy hem’ of responsible existence, unravelling the banal frustrations of online outrage and ageing friends, and grasping at something ‘beyond our squeaky comprehension’. Wright files through the shackles of cynicism to ask how can we let go without giving up.

Luke Wright is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist.
Carl Barât

This is a terrific new book: subtle, nuanced and movingly personal. A hurt man, taking stock in fresh words.
Ian Duhig

In Luke Wright's long awaited third collection of deeply personal, elegiac but optimistic poems, he writes with such wit, wisdom and detailed observation about contemporary life online and on the road; in his head and in his Suffolk home. Wright's images are unforgettable, his wry insights are original and his expertly crafted lines sing, gallop and throb with feeling.
James McDermott
