Lovereading view...

In Quicksand Beach, Kate Bingham captures snapshots of everyday life in her poetry. Her simple style manages to encompass weighty subjects effortlessly. It's special stuff.


Quicksand Beach by Kate Bingham

Evocative, glancing, playful, engaged: this collection sings with Binghamâs keen intelligence and quietly subversive sense of humour. Her style is accessible, her subjects often domestic, but through her use of complex forms her take on the everyday is often subtly strange, even surreal. Childhood memories, marriage, children, road trips, ice storms, and dreams all inspire these thoughtful and persuasive new poems.
