£14.99
Each One a Furnace explores (im)migration, diasporas, transience, and instability by following the behaviour, and the abundant variety, of finches. The often-migratory birds in these poems typify the unrest, and inability to rest, that animate the lives of billions in the modern world. Out of the register of ornithology, themes of difficulty, adversity, and migrancy, urban ennui, and the psychic struggles of diasporic peoples take shape. Those unable to be at rest in the world take to improbable flight. Each One a Furnace is a chronicle of struggle within, and between, cultures.
