We Are the Lizards by Margaret Jennings
Offer until 31/01/22
"Margaret Jennings’ notes on the making of these disarmingly artless poems are almost as fascinating as the poems themselves. Each stems from a place of inquisitiveness, curiosity and wonder. ‘Would a mountain stream prefer to be the sea?’ she asks. It doesn’t matter that we’ll never know. In this charming first collection, whose subjects range from the astronomer Patrick Moore's love life to mathematicsand lizards, it’s thequestioning that counts."
‘The poems in We Are The Lizards range far and wide, from the mysterious immensity that stretches above our heads to the chalky earth that crumbles beneath our boots. They contain brambles and crows, trees and mountain-streams.
But they're not quite nature poems – because they're always returning to the human heart, and to the joys and fears that our lives bring us. A quiet, tender book, which relishes small, everyday wonders.’
David Swann (Author of 'The Privilege of Rain')
