In this long awaited second collection, Sue Hubbard gathers together five major sequences which combine to form in a journey of love, loss and redemption. The central theme is an extended elegy to the poet's brother. Hubbard guides us into labyrinths of haunting emotion and dares to give utterance to our deepest concerns. Exploring both the dark and the light, she gives voice to raw emotion, to our vulnerabilities, so often concealed, and through its disclosure suggests the possibility of renewal.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Here then is a poet who serves as an antidote to the chirpy shalllow materialism of much of our culture, one whose most apparent quality is an honesty about the difficulties of living in the early 21st century.

-- Martyn Crucefix * Magma *

Sue Hubbard brings passionate and prophetic visions into the sphere of family life... An accomplished art-critic, Hubbard can convey the pictorial in vivid and startling language.

-- Peter Lawson * Jewish Chronicle - The Weekly Review *

It is hard to get poems `right' about the death of a close relative, lover, or friend; mawkishness and sentimentality are dangers as is indulgent reminiscence and nostalgia. Hubbard avoids all of these with her pared down lines and stark scene setting, ending with startling directness with a powerful acknowledge of nature's indifference to the matter of our small deaths.

-- Richard Dyer * Ambit *
