The Overhaul is Kathleen Jamie's first collection since the award-winning The Tree House, and it broadens her poetic range considerably. The Overhaul continues Jamie's lyric enquiry into the aspects of the world our rushing lives elide, and even threaten. Whether she is addressing birds or rivers, or the need to accept loss, or sometimes, the desire to escape our own lives, her work is earthy and rigorous, her language at once elemental and tender.

As an essayist, she has frequently queried our human presence in the world with the question `How are we to live?' Here, this is answered more personally than ever. The Overhaul is a mid-life book of repair, restitution, and ultimately hope - of the wisest and most worldly kind.

“Excellent”

The more that I read of Kathleen Jamie’s work the more I grow to like her writing. I have previously read Findings and Sightlines and thought that they were superb, but I have never read any of her poetry before.
