Lucy Tunstall's striking debut collection features a cast of characters ranging from Paul Muldoon and Marianne Moore to Aunt Jane, who fell in love in 1956, or thereabouts', and Cousin Gillian, who keeps the family's long-case clock in her caravan ( Some people do not think this an appropriate arrangement'). Using a variety of registers and forms, including dramatic monologue, lyric, collage and found text, Tunstall explores poetry's negotiations of truthfulness and theatricality, accuracy and artifice. Perceptive and humorous, but never sentimental, she reaches into the deep emotions that lie beneath inhibition and the conventions that govern ordinary and extraordinary lives.
