About the Book

Sophie McKeand’s first full-length poetry collection speaks of socialism and starlings, and sings the praise of the Rebel Sun who recreates the world every day so that at any time we can cast off the past and do the same. These poems dream of the fluidity and politics, of time and place, map mountain and mind. They talk of knitting together people and communities. But after this comes the slow unravelling the compulsion to let go, transform and shape-shift; slowly unwind roots from the earth; grow fin and feather; know water and sky.
