Lumsden, Roddy
ISBN: 1852244038Category:


Sold Out

A large and varied debut collection which uses the lives of lovers and losers, eavesdroppers and entertainers to explore romance, faith and last orders at the bar. The poems are formal but with a frantic edge; they are lyrical, but laced with a cruel streak and a measured done of indulgence. Roddy Lumsden is concerned with how relationships shift and twist and restore an order, with how people meet and part. The poems range over weddings, revenge and phobias, beer, girls and the need ‘to get these answers right’ POETRY (b. 1966, St. Andrews); Writing Fellow for the City of Aberdeen 1995-96.
