Black Shiver Moss by Graham Mort

Graham Mort’s masterly 10th collection of poetry, Black Shiver Moss (Seren), is packed with poems about his native northern counties of Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria, as well as stunning evocations of elsewhere: Africa, Southern Spain, France, Italy. A prize-winning short story author as well as a poet, Mort’s rich, concentrated style thrives on detailed observations of the natural world, their deep feeling harnessed to a finely-honed technique.
