Solar Cruise is Claire Crowther's fourth collection and a Poetry Book Society Recommendation for Spring 2020. Her first collection, Stretch of Closures, was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh Best First Collection prize. Solar Cruise is a love story of a poet and a physicist who is devoted to halting climate change through solar energy. It is a passionately personal but also political work. Claire Crowther's poetry has always been linguistically playful; here she uses an engaging variety of stylistic devices to deliver perhaps the most important message of our time, that solar energy can save us from extinction. Claire Crowther is Deputy Editor of Long Poem Magazine and lives in Somerset with her partner, Emeritus Professor Keith Barnham, Distinguished Research Fellow at Imperial College, London.

"One of our most intelligent surrealists." -Fiona Sampson

"Like Marianne Moore, she is able to locate the poetry asleep in the language of science." -David Morley, Poetry Review
