Reader, Saboteur Awards

"This is an incredibly moving, essential meditation"

Kerri Ní Dochartaigh

Stranger in the Mask of a Deer conjures an elemental, dreamlike narrative ranging from the present to the Late-Upper Palaeolithic, when the British peninsula was gradually reoccupied by humans and animals returning from the greater continent after the Ice Age.


"Inspiring, grounded, magical ... a talisman of a book"

Helen Mort

In Heavy Time psychogeographer Sonia Overall takes to the old pilgrim roads, navigating a route from Canterbury to Walsingham via London and her home town of Ely.


"Innovative, dazzling, affecting poems that shimmer with intellectual acuity and emotional resonance."

Rebecca Tamás

A remarkable new book in praise of marine fauna, Of Sea takes the form of a poetic bestiary of creatures living beneath, beside and above the water: in wetlands, salt marshes and the intertidal zone.
