Latch


Paul Jeffcutt

ISBN 978-1-904652-90-8

Latch is Paul Jeffcutt's debut collection and its poems sing with a remarkable assurance.

Bracing in their intellectual and geographical sweep, Jeffcutt's poems are not afraid of engaging with painful emotion. Whether writing about family, childhood, politics and cultural history, the natural world, the strangeness of elsewhere, Jeffcutt speaks with insight and candour. At the core are deeply moving poems of love and loss.

Skilled and memorable, Jeffcutt's language is grounded in the everyday. Firmly rooted, these poems move deftly round what it is to live in the modern world, seeing not just mordant ironies but also the moments of transcendance, of passion and of transformation.

Latch is an immensely readable and thought-provoking collection.
