Salt Water Creek
Rhian Gallagher’s first collection draws the reader into spaces and across landscapes, from New Zealand to London, and Ireland to New York. With a light touch, her precise, vivid language describes childhood geographies, the death of parents, moments of solitude and erotic love between women. The poems unfold in a deceptively relaxed style and are full of stings and surprises.
