Author: Ruth Padel. Review by Melvyn Freake
Ruth Padel is a prize-winning poet who teaches at Kings College, London. She is also a traveller who spent time when writing this book at the migrant camp on Lesbos. Here, she writes in both prose and poetry: each section begins with a prose description, which is followed by poems on the same theme. She writes beautifully, with great clarity and feeling.
