  • Information


"Third Wish Wasted" is a book concerned with our wishes and desires.

Belonging to a world between real and imagined folklore, the poems are by turns celebratory, humorous and beguiling, and there are bittersweet contemplations of youth, beauty and fame.

Roddy Lumsden is one of the liveliest and most inventive poets writing in Britain today.

His fifth collection sees him extending the range of his poetry, straying into denser and more musical territory, as well as sticking with the form and wit which typifies his earlier work.

In "Third Wish Wasted" he invents and tries out various unusual and inventive forms such as charismatics, overlays and relegated narratives.

There are poems composed on a top fashion shoot, inspired by travels in the USA and, as ever, he picks apart the problems between men and women.
