Fusewire has the fierce historical awareness and linguistic energy of Ruth Padel's previous collections but moves into new territory and new clarity. Poems on British activity in Ireland through the ages intrude on an intensely moving series of love poems which reverse sexual cliches of colonisation: here Britain is female and Ireland the high-profile man. From the prize-winning poet of Rembrandt Would Have Loved You, Voodoo Shop and The Soho Leopard, all shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] rewarding and effective Anglo-Irish affair, using a passionate relationship to cast light on the vexed colonial history and current situation of the two islands... There are some intensely erotic moments" -- Guardian
"She has a fierce humour. Her poems speed, never out of the fast lane" * Poetry Ireland Review *
"[An] extraordinary talent" * Observer *
"Her sense of history, of the past intertwining with the present, is most poignant" * Times Literary Supplement *
"If Wallace Stevens and Anna Akhmatova were one and the same person, you'd have Ruth Padel" -- Paul Durcan
