Susan Wicks' poetry transforms the apparently ordinary into something precise, surprising, and revelatory. The new poems in Night Toad move outwards from the intimacy of personal loss to a wider landscape haunted by disappearance--a French Flanders still scarred by successive wars, the woman pen pal of a prisoner on Death Row, an old woman with dementia lost in the woods, the absent keeper of an unmanned Cornish lighthouse. As well as a whole new collection, this volume also includes a generous selection of work from her three previous collections: Singing Underwater. Open Diagnosis, and The Clever Daughter, which was short-listed for both the T.S. Eliot and Forward Prizes. She has also published two novels and a memoir.
