Grimalkin & Other Poems
by Thomas Lynch
The poems in Grimalkin - Thomas Lynch's first publication in Britain are all concerned, in one way or another, with achieving a balance in the face of gravity. In each poem, Lynch is looking for this equilibrium between equal and opposing forces: the gravities of sex and death, love and grief - all the things that make us breathless and horizontal, mortal and memorable.
Paperback, 80 pages
Published August 4th 1994 by Jonathan Cape
