Robin Peace writes of the world through the eye of a swallow and from the window of a plane sweeping over the earth. She writes as water making its way from mountain to sea, and of time as a passage of yellow red birds that declares a harvest singing from the cut earth. When her mother faces death by starvation, the natural world is called on to give relief – a blackbird to swallow her, silverfish to consume her as a book.

This is a debut collection that shimmers even in sight of devastation.
