Author(s): Andrew Lansdown
Few poets have explored the weight and wonder of fatherhood like Andrew Lansdown. Over the years he has established a high reputation for his subtle, insightful poems about his wife and children. Acclaimed poet and critic Geoff Page has observed that 'Lansdown has a very sincere and direct way of handling poems about his immediate family which subtly suggests great tenderness without becoming sentimental.' Now, for the first time, Andrew's widely-published, award-wining poems celebrating family life are gathered in one collection, Gestures of Love. These fatherhood poems are bound to delight and move all readers-not only parents, but also anyone interested in the joy, grief and quirkiness of the human condition.
