Sam Adams Other books by Sam Adams
This is Sam Adams' third poetry collection. Written over a number of years, the poems reflect his interests in literature and the arts, history and the natural world, people and places, and, above all, family. The title poem, an offbeat elegy, sounds the keynote of irrecoverable time and loss, but there are also wryly humorous glances at life and moments of celebration too.
"Sam Adams is a real poet" - Anglo-Welsh Review

"(His) writing is technically accomplished, generating intimate and original images." - Planet
"Clarity and elegance ... characterise (his) poetry." - New Welsh Review
