Candleshoe is named after a medieval district in Lincolnshire, where history and present-day encounters collide. Small tractors toil across the empty fields, people try to connect, and a tragicomic Fool appears and disappears through the landscape. It might look like somewhere you know, but it probably isn’t.

This is the second full collection by Rennie Parker, including the central group of poems from her booklet Borderville, also published
by Shoestring.

‘… she has a bold distinctive vision, a stranger’s eye for the weirdness of the ordinary’ – Alison Brackenbury, in Under the Radar 10.
