From the Winner of the Edwin Morgan Poetry Prize 2018

'The old Shetland fishermen still speak with something like reverence of the forgotten art of steering by the moder dy (mother wave), the name given to an underswell which it is said always travels in the direction of home'

Written in English, interspersed with Shetlandic dialect throughout, this eagerly awaited debut collection from Shetland poet Roseanne Watt contains profound, assured and wilfully spare poems that are built from the sight, sound and heartbeat of the land as much as from the sea. In rigorously controlled, concise, and vivid language Watt offers glimpses of the landscape alongside which we find the most complex and mysterious of human experiences.

Review:

'Extraordinarily intricate and multi-layered. An exercise in linguistic navigation. Unputdownable' - Roger Cox, Yorkshire Post

'This is a celebration of language, place, and the mystery of being alive' --Janice Galloway

'A shimmering, unforgettable collection' --John Glenday

'This collection of work - bold, compassionate, life-affirming - underlines Watt's role as one of the most significant young voices not just in Shetland but in Scotland at large. ... This bonny book has never been far from by hand since I acquired it... I should probably order another cover now' - Shetland Times

'I really can't overstate just how damn good I think this collection is, how rich it is, or how much I want everybody I know to read it. I am absolutely in awe of what Roseanne Watt has done here, hers is a voice to follow' --Haley Anderton, Desperate Reader blog
