This Life, This Life: Selected Poems 1970-2006 - Andrew Greig

Bloodaxe, 2006, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Lightly rubbed at the tips of the wrappers.

First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “What are the contours of a life? For Andrew Greig: childhood, adolescence, the country then the city, sex, love, marriage, break-ups and breakdowns personal and political, mountain adventures, illness and recovery, increased awareness of mortality and the preciousness of the moments left, late love… they’re all here in these wildly diverse, affirmative, open-hearted poems. As a poet and latterly as a novelist, Greig is one of Scotland’s most esteemed writers. Each of his poetry books has been distinctively different, from the early and late poems rooted in the natural world, to the game-playing extended narratives of exultation and risk, from human love to the mountaineering poems.”
