The poems collected in Nick Drake’s fourth collection Out of Range strange interconnections and confronting anxieties of the early 21st century - or the Anthropocene. Here are poems in praise of flies, and of the Whitechapel Fatberg; the life stories of incandescent lightbulbs and plastic bottles; portraits of those living on the streets and of Voyager 1 crossing the threshold of the solar system. The past echoes in poems about the ancient artists who recorded their presence in cave art, a Spanish missionary thrilled by an Aztec ball game, and a story of gay love from the Song dynasty. Above all, the poems seek to tune in to what is out of range; the dark matter of mystery, wonder and deep time, at the edge of our senses, and at the back of our heads, which poetry makes visible.

‘A scintillating collection of poems…a mastery of form and tone, and a simple, uncontrived unravelling of emotional and psychological complexities… If you care about words; if you care about the impossibility but the nobility of trying to express the ineffable in language that is accessible but that stuns, then haunts you, buy this book.’ – Lloyd Rees, Envoi

‘Subtle, funny and tremendously moving. He has an eye for the small detail as well as the big picture. These poems brilliantly evoke time and place.’ – Jackie Kay
