A collection of poetry, centred on Greece and especially Crete, about the history that is attached to family life. The pressure of past relationships between Minoans, Greeks, Venetians and Turks becomes an image for the richness and suffering inherent in differences. Ruth Padel's work has appeared in a variety of magazines including "The Times Literary Supplement", "Encounter" and "PEN Review".
