These poems pulse with the language and images of a mangrove-lined river city, the beckoning highway, the just-glimpsed muse, the tug of childhood and restless ancestors.For the first time Samuel Wagan Watson's poetry has been collected into this stunning volume, which includes a final section of all new work.
