High Speed Through Shoaling Water by Tom Wayman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book incorporates the beauty of the rural landscape with the strangeness of living in today's world. These deceptively simple poems cover rural life, social issues, love's vicissitudes, ageing and the writing life. Throughout the book, Wayman interweaves reflections on the landscape of world and work with musings on personal and communal history. High Speed Through Shoaling Water is both celebratory and elegiac, personal and political -- recording the passage of time, the events that mark the years and the biological force that bears all living things forward, whether they want to travel that way or not.
