Drysalter by Michael Symmons Roberts
Drysalter
Michael Symmons Roberts
Winner of the Costa Poetry Award 2013. This is Roberts' most expansive writing yet: mystical, philosophical, earthy and elegiac. Drysalter sings of the world's unceasing ability to surprise, and the shock and dislocation of catching your own life unawares.
Format: Paperback - Released: 04/04/2013
