- Paperback - Nine Arches
Richie McCaffrey's debut collection of poems begins in a dedication and ends with ghosts - in between lies hoards of artefacts and long-forgotten antiques; a police whistle, a tarnished silver spoon, the bookmark lodged in a boring book decades before that sings of a lost age.

'Tree Language' is told in shard-like poems of supreme richness and finely balanced darkness - variously shaped, whittled to a point, almost sharp enough to draw blood. And although this is a book spiked with brambles and skeletal branches, shot through with frost and fossilled with plant-bones, blood is the slick thread that sews together its themes and landscapes.
