The U.S. publication of the latest collection by Don Paterson, winner of the 2003 Whitbread Poetry Award and two-time winner of the T. S. Eliot Prize Dear son, I was mezzo del camminand the true path was as lost to me as everwhen you cut in front and lit it as you ran.See how the true gift never leaves the giver . . .—from “Waking with Russell”Hailed for its “enormous skill and verve” (The Guardian) and its “seriousness and moral urgency” (The Independent), Landing Light is one of the most important and resonant poetry collections to come out of Britain in recent years. Ceaselessly inquiring, Don Paterson discovers the love of a son, a talking book, the voices of a wreckage left in the black box. In traditional forms, short lyrics, and long narratives, Paterson has crafted—with precision and passion—his most accomplished and spiritual collection.
