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.
