Read full description of the books:
Astonishingly copious, unaffected and deft. There are poems about people dropping out of airplanes in a totalitarian Latin American republic that ask 'what do we tell the children?' and exploit the landings' poetic inconguity; poems about Armitage the social worker's charges who trace his hands wordlessly on the Tube or piss themselves, the spread from their jeans staining and indicting a whole town. One persona is of the teen existentialist, the Camus-reader who is thoughtfully dissociated. Armitage also evokes neighbourhood and sexual companionship, particularly the end of an affair in a sodden summer of bickering, with warmth.
