My new poetry collection, Wing,  now out from Faber and Faber, was chosen as Poetry Book of the Month in The Observer. Kate Kellaway writes: "Nature does not go out of fashion and we need poetry of this quality more than ever. Wing ... is a joy."

Wing is a celebration of the richness of nature and of our responses to it. Read more about the collection here.
