Stranger in the Mask of a Deer (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Stranger in the Mask of a Deer conjures an elemental, dreamlike narrative set in the Late-Upper Palaeolithic, as the British peninsula was gradually reoccupied by humans (and animals) returning from the greater continent after the Ice Age. Skelton began the poem many years ago with the intention of exploring the history of Britain's landscape, only for the text to transform into a kind of literary seance involving both human and other-than-human.
