Synopsis

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.

About the Author

Kate Bingham received an Eric Gregory Award from the Society of Authors in 1996. Her first collection, Cohabitation, and first novel, Mummy’s Legs, were published the following year. Slipstream, her second novel, appeared in 2000. She has two children and lives and works in London as a poet and filmmalker.
