Quietly reflective, the beautifully written poems in this slim volume offer a welcome respite from the noisy insistence of modern life. The language, now simple and direct, now rich in associations, double-meanings, and imagery, has its own natural rhythm and appeal regardless of subject and rhyme. Intriguing, absorbing, thought-provoking, the poems are innovative and fresh and the intensity of the verses in places will undoubtedly strike a chord with readers of all kinds - both established readers of poetry, those who read poetry now and again, and those turning to poetry for the first time. Largely relating one person's take on how it is to be in the world, the poems address such aspects of life as time, being, loss, culture, and contingency. The collection is divided into three sections - non-rhyming poems, rhyming poems, and a concluding section of lighter, more humorous verses, with each of two additional poems serving as foreword and afterword.

Born in Nottingham, England, in 1952 into a working class family, William Sharp was educated at Nottingham High School for Boys, and Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. In 1977, he moved to Norway where he married a young woman from Bergen. They had first met in Hamar a few years earlier and became a couple when she moved to Newcastle for a year to study English. Living first in Bergen and later moving to the Stavanger area where William took up employment in an oil company, he and his wife lived there until retiring and moving to the UK in 2015. He has two daughters and four grandchildren, all living in England.
