"Third Day" is a selection from the poems Grey Gowrie has written between 1958 and the present day. At the centre of the book is the sequence "The Domino Hymn: Poems from Harefield", first published to great acclaim in 2005. This work draws on the best part of a year spent in hospital when the author, dying of a virus on the heart, was jolted back to life and writing by the surgical gift of a heart from a living donor. "Marches", poems of the post-operative years, follows, inspired by the country between England and Wales and the borderlands we all occupy between being and non-being. The book ends with "From Primrose Hill", a meditation on contemporary London.

Review:

"Grey Gowrie's poems--utterly free of any querulous or self-pitying note--touch the reader's own heart." --"Times Literary Supplement
"

"Grey Gowrie's poems utterly free of any querulous or self-pitying note touch the reader's own heart." "Times Literary Supplement
""

"Gowrie's strength lies in his ability to make us see beyond his own tragedy. He is honest without being over-emotional, confining his poems to incidents that reveal a truth beyond his personal situation." "Guardian""

About the Author:

Grey Gowrie was born in Dublin in 1939. Educated and professionally engaged in England and the USA, he made his home in Ireland until 1983 when he moved to the Welsh Marches.
