Description

Following “Looking Through Letterboxes”, her first collection (2002), Caroline Bird was acclaimed as a vivid and precocious new talent. “Trouble Came to the Turnip” confirms her originality as she strikes out again in new directions, taking nothing for granted. Her poems are ferociously vital, fantastical, sometimes violent, almost always savagely humorous and self-mocking. Caroline Bird’s world is inhabited by failed and (less often) successful relationships, by the dizzying crisis of early adulthood, by leprechauns and spells and Miss Pringle’s seven lovely daughters waiting to spring out of a cardboard cake, and the turnip.
