Description

Matthew Tierney's debut collection of poetry is full of trains and visions. From Japan's subtle intricacies to the harsh realities of the Trans-Mongolian Express, Tierney captures the experience of movement and the freedom and dislocation of the traveller with potent imagery and persuasive verse. Whether searching for his own history in his grandfather's past in Wales, or stumbling through a Japanese lesson, Tierney's poetry pulls you into the experience, and through to the other side with a new appreciation of the moment. A strong debut collection from an energetic new poet.
