Product description

The wealth of sense-impressions in Katherine Pierpoint's poems, the panache with which she musters them and the music thereby generated would be noteworthy in any volume, but they are all the more so in this first collection. Truffle Beds signals the arrival of a mature and truly original voice. Pierpoint has opened up her own geographical and emotional territory, and her eye for both outer and inner worlds is acute and sympathetic.A POETRY BOOK SOCIETY RECOMMENDATION
