Review:

"America is in for a delightful treat now that the work of Scottish poet Don Paterson is within its easy reach. A perfect blend of light and dark humor, his poems combine the mordant with the celebratory, the sweetness of the heart with the bitter taste of experience. Most of all, he knows how to write poems in whichevery line is awake, every one composed with care and a billiardplayer's feel for the way language can spin us subtly this way and that." --Billy Collins "It's a long time since I've been knocked sideways by a book of poems, but the life, energy, verbal precision, and inventiveness of Don Paterson's "Landing Light "kept me awake at night." --A. S. Byatt, "The Guardian"

Book Description:

The U.S. publication of the latest collection by Don Paterson, winner of the 2003 Whitbread Poetry Award and two-time winner of the T. S.
