The fabulous new collection from the prize-winning poet Gerard Woodward. Gerard Woodward's poetry has long been admired for its sharp and unflinching eye, its fearless surrealism, its blacker-than-black humour, and its ability to find a little abyss in practically any detail, no matter how innocuous or domestic. Here, his reconsiderations of trampolines, bird-tables, lightbulbs and bear-suits will leave the reader unable to regard those things in quite the same way again; there are also science-fiction novellas compressed to a few stanzas, strange potted biographies, and lists of edicts from long-dead tyrants. However The Seacunny finds that inimitable voice extend itself in new and unexpected directions, with the poet turning to the natural world and to human relationships in ways that are affecting as they are surprising: it is a book of astonishing range, and declares a new lyric direction in Woodward's poetry.
