Sleeping Rough

£12.99

Product description

In Sleeping Rough, his third book, Charles Boyle moves between London and North Africa, the principal locations of the two parts of this volume. The poems are dense with particulars of modern urban life in these contrasting worlds and mediate between the debris of history and the harsh white light of the future. Boyle writes with an eye for unusual detail that expresses both a sure sense of place and a continual insecurity.
Pages clean and tightly bound. Cover slightly browned top back and top edge browned.
