About the Book

Later That Day contains new works of gratitude and elegy. At once lyrical and direct, these poems take place in Glasgow, Auckland, the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands, and above all amid the clear light and bare, fertile islands of Orkney. They look to come across the distance between writer and reader, between one person and another, as they register the magic and loss of living and loving.
