From the very first page of this varied and engaging debut collection, Rhys Owain Williams invites his readers to pause. Here is a poet who is working things out, taking time to contemplate what it means to grow older with each passing day. The poems in That Lone Ship are often caught between two places - inhabiting the quiet spaces between childhood and adulthood, lust and love, heartbreak and new beginnings, life and death. An acute observer, Williams writes with a sharp-eyed, questing intelligence. The future has as large a presence in this collection as the past. Restrained and elegantly-crafted, the poems in That Lone Ship resonate beyond the page, finding their footing between the known and the unknown, the said and the unsaid.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The decks of That Lone Ship fizz with the imagery of a changing seaside town. Its souls are chronicled with pathos and tenderness.' - Paul Henry `Rhys Owain Williams proves himself a skilled navigator, charting a course through seas both calm and rough, familiar and strange. By turns moving, poignant, funny and undeniably local, these poems deal with place and people, love and friendship: Swansea town and its familial inhabitants in all their ugly (lovely) glory. That Lone Ship, whether arriving or departing, is one you'll swim out to; one you won't want to miss.' - Emily Blewitt
