Richly imaginative and intercontinental: the new collection from the prizewinning poet and translator.

Jamie McKendrick connects our list to the European continent with his sensitive prizewinning translations of Italian and Spanish poetry. This new collection of original poems shows his gift for bringing into verse the vivid landscapes and 'earscapes' wherever he travels: be it the English countryside or the sunlit Mediterranean. Philosophical, compassionate and ever imaginative, Anomaly demonstrates McKendrick's deep learning in the visual arts as well as in the European literary heritages we share.
