The array of characters in this book of lyric poems personify twenty-first century language, found on adverts, shopfronts, train tickets. "Stretch of Closures" writes down an urban landscape in an alphabet made readable by its citizens. If it is the dead metaphors that define everyday lives, Claire Crowther shakes them up to show not just history but signposts to the future. This is Claire Crowther's first collection.
