Since their first publication in 2012, James Nash’s sonnets have delighted thousands of poetry readers and listeners across the globe. Philosophical, satirical, warm and bittersweet, the sixty-three poem sequence spans the full breadth of the human experience; and can be enjoyed afresh in this second edition, which includes a handful of new sonnets, as heard on BBC Radio 3 in 2014.
“James Nash illuminates, wonderfully, the small details and the large issues of life, love and language. These are magical and memorable poems: poignant yet rich with humour, and underpinned, above all, by a great humanity.”
— Sarah Waters
“The sonnets of James Nash’s wonderful new collection are love poems of maturity, not just in their assured technique but also in their subject matter. Nash makes plenty of room for humour too ... I cannot recommend it strongly enough.”
— Ian Duhig
“James Nash’s poetry is a thing of beauty: subtle, unpretentious, moving.”
— Justin Cartwright
