Synopsis

Winner of the 2013 T S Eliot Prize for Poetry Shortlisted for the 2013 Forward Prize for Best Collection In Parallax Sinead Morrissey documents what is caught, and what is lost, when houses and cityscapes, servants and saboteurs ('the different people who lived in sepia') are arrested in time by photography (or poetry), subjected to the authority of a particular perspective. Assured and disquieting, Morrissey's poems explore the paradoxes in what is seen, read and misread in the surfaces of the presented world.
