This posthumous collection brings together poems, most of them unpublished, which Douglas Houston wrote between 2010 and his untimely death.

“Douglas Houston is an Auden like Artifice of great accomplishment.” – Peter Porter

“A poet of landscape and literature itself, of wild humour and humbling candour. We are lucky to have him.” – Sean O’Brien

“In this bitter-sweet postscript to a notable literary career, the technical brilliance is undimmed, the Satanic chuckling still just within earshot, and the melancholy tang of a Yorkshire autumn is offset by a gentle joy in the flowering of a late love.” – T. F. Griffin
