Anthony Wilson’s third poetry collection examines the precariousness of male identity confronted by shifting roles. It invites the reader into everyday dilemmas which are relished even as they remain unresolved. The personae of husband, father, brother and son are exposed and embraced.
“In both style and content a mix of casual and formal. All the poems feel genuinely personal. Anthony Wilson’s poetry has an easy-going surface but a thoughtful interior.”
Paul Munden, The North
“Anthony Wilson’s acute and astute observations are witty, humorous and often poignant. He looks at what it means to occupy various roles as son, brother, father, husband, teacher —and the best of these poems create a finely balanced tension, tantalizing, resonant.”
Catherine Smith, The Frogmore Papers
