In her first Carcanet collection, Lesley Harrison looks north to the sea, the heat of the land at her back. In inventive arrangements of sound and page, Harrison meditates on whale hunts, lost children, cities seen and remembered, and the sound of the gamelan in the Gulf of Bothnia.
Lesley Harrison has published six collections of poetry, including the poetry pamphlet Blue Pearl, published by New Directions. She has lived and worked in Istanbul, West Africa, Mongolia, and the Orkney Islands, off Scotland’s northern coastline. Harrison has held writing residencies in Iceland, Greenland, Svalbard, and The Center for Hellenic Studies at Harvard University. She lives in a small fishing village on the Angus coast of Scotland, where she also works as a teacher supporting language and literacy development.
