"Donald Adamson's succinct, immensely enjoyable translations of Eeva Kilpi's poems capture a voice which is direct, ironic, lyrical and robust. These poems light up the darkest corners of experience with apparently casual assurance, and express the curious, addictive pains and wonders of the everyday with wit and an undertow of sorrow." Helen Dunmore "... Urgent, honest, compulsive, funny - poems I'd send to friends who say they don't like poetry." Jen Hadfield
Eeva Kilpi is one of Finland's best-loved writers, and a Nobel Prize nominee. Her work has been published in sixteen languages, but this is her first full-length poetry collection in English.
