NEW FROM MARISCAT PRESS – HUGO WILLIAMS, BADLANDS

I was caught in the draught
between never going out and yet
never coming home: hesitant
halfway places, landings and lifts,
where nobody lingers or love

from ‘Frosted Glass Weather’

Badlands

 

Hugo Williams’s Badlands is a series of fourteen-line loosely-connected amorous episodes and reflections, by turns wicked and poignant – and funny.

Hugo Williams was born in Windsor in 1942, grew up in Sussex and now lives in London. His Collected Poems was published by Faber in 2002 and in 2004 he received the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry.
