Signed and dedicated by Julia Copus directly to the title page.

The poems in Julia Copus's second collection are imbued with a wry logic and spellbinding resonance. They infuse us with primal stirrings as we read them, sharing in her unease and anxiety but also enlivened by a thrilling sense of personal recognition. They trace the paths of lives and relationships through a world carved out by the choices we make. At the same time, they summon up another world beneath our ever-pressing turmoil of love and family relationships, a parallel world made up of what might have been, as well as what might still be. These strong and vital poems hold science and art, time and timelessness in a tense balance. Dense, elliptical, and suggestive, they throw down a challenge to readers, urging us to be constantly on the move rather than stand still and stagnate.


Very good condition. Previous owner's name to the ffep, and very slight creasing to the corners.
