Fathers consider their children and children consider their fathers in this collection of poems about masculinity, legacy and modern fatherhood. Silence is a key theme, as poets explore words unspoken and feelings suppressed, but reconciliations also emerge from unlikely places: through wearing a father’s gloves; through ghostly meetings in pubs and train stations; and at the bottom of the garden by the shed.
With poems by Alan Buckley, John Canfield, Oliver Comins, Nathan Curnow, Hugh Dunkerley, Flora de Falbe, Sarah Fletcher, John Fuller, Jeremy Grant, John Grey, Robert Hamberger, James Harris, Sara Hirsch, Lynn Hoffman, Kirsten Irving, Max Maher, Martin Malone, Harry Man, Katrina Naomi, Richard O’Brien, Rachel Piercey, Stevie Ronnie, Jacqueline Saphra, John Saunders, Tom Sheehan, Di Slaney, Jon Stone, Richard Thompson and Jerrold Yam.

I’ve redesigned the print book for e-readers, and made two different files: one for tablet devices and one for Kindle devices.
When you buy this ebook, please make sure you register an account on this site (instead of going through as a guest), so you can log into your account to download the files after your payment has been processed. If you are just buying the ebook, make sure you select the ‘ebook only’ shipping option.
If you pay by Paypal, you should be able to go to ‘Your Account’ and click ‘View’.
On the next screen, click ‘Download file ->’ in order to download the package.
If you choose to pay by bank transfer, you’ll need to drop me an email to get my details and then I’ll move your order from ‘processing’ to ‘completed’ so you can follow the steps from ‘Your Account’ too.
These files are DRM-free and you can put them on all your devices if you like. Obviously listen to your conscience when it comes to distributing them willy-nilly (i.e. Please don’t).
