Tamar Yoseloff’s second collection moves from the mysteries of the sky - an invisible red dwarf, the aurora borealis - to the everyday life of earth - an abandoned seaside pier, a crowded London bus, a Woolworths in a small American town, places in Yoseloff’s vision no less fantastic than the celestial world. What links them is a belief in the unknown, faith in the ability to bridge distance and loss through language.
