A Fold in the Map by Isobel Dixon

£9.99

Product Details

A Fold in the Map charts two very different voyages: a tracing of the dislocations of leaving one s native country, and a searching exploration of grief at a father s final painful journey. In the first part of the collection, Plenty "before the fold" the poems deal with family, and longing for home from a new country, with all the ambiguity and doubleness this perspective entails. In the book's second half, Meet My Father, the poems recount events more life-changing than merely moving abroad a father's illness and death, the loss of some of the plenty of the earlier poems.
