My Father's Trapdoor

Author: Peter Redgrove

The mysterious complicity that exists between the living and the dead is the subject of these poems, in which Peter Redgrove winds inner and outer worlds closer and closer together. In a number of autobiographical poems, he both recalls and re-imagines his late parents exploring the vast potential of our life now and the possible varieties of an afterlife. Redgrove has won both the Prix Italia and the Guardian Fiction Prize.
