The new collection from one of the best new talents in contemporary poetry Paul Farley's debut collection: The Boy from the Chemist is Here to See You was one of the most highly acclaimed in recent years. It won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection;a Somerset Maugham Award and was shortlisted for the Whitbread Poetry Award. In 1999 he was named as the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year. His collection was described as 'a stunning debut' by the Sunday Times The Ice Age sees Farley extend his range to embrace a new and philosophical seriousness. His gift is to uncover the evidence so often overlooked by less attentive observers, finding - in childhood games, dental records and dog-eared field guides - those details by which we are proven and elegised. Formally deft and dizzying in its variety, The Ice Age will consolidate Farley's reputation as one of the most imaginative and enduring poets to have emerged in recent years.
