Fiends Fell among the “Best of 2017”

In new titles on December 22, 2017 at 4:13 pm

Tom Pickard’s Fiends Fell is included among the “best poetry of 2017” in both the Times Literary Supplement and the New York Times. In the TLS, Jeremy Noel-Tod calls it “…a masterpiece of poet’s prose in the tradition of Bashō and Coleridge. Fiends Fell (Flood Editions) is as fresh, various, quick and restless as the daily weather it notates.” In the NYT, David Orr writes, “…this collection is a mix of poetry and plainspoken prose that meditates on loneliness, sex, geography, art and occasionally pies. The closing poem, ‘Lark & Merlin,’ is a showcase for Pickard’s extraordinary acoustical precision.”
