A set of black and white photographs taken by her father in 1940’s India was the impetus for the sequence Dancing in Silchar which opens Chrissie Gittins’ third collection. Memories searched out in India are brought forward to the attentive present. Past and present continue to collide in poems which witness loss and change. Other poems reflect on historical figures. Imagined lives are examined and pinned with details to the future.

“Chrissie Gittins’ poetry is a vivid engagement with life at every point of contact – whether in travel, art, reading, family, friendship or memory. First, you are charmed by the sheer interest and observant detail of its surfaces… then gradually you sense the grave and graceful business being done with the deepest things – loss, love, time passing – underneath.’
