Shading our eyes from the glare we stand still, breath held, scanning this blue country we are on the edge of, watching for a sign that we may go home. In poems written from and about a specific point at the tip of a continent, Karen Press sends out delicate and skilful soundings: where are we? who are we? where have we come from? what might we become? Never overburdened by earnestness, Echo Location takes a good look at the hard questions by means of great entertainment.
