Handful of Water, A Cover Image

About the Author: Rebecca Gethin

Rebecca won her first writing competition at the age of ten with an essay on rabbits for the Wharfedale Naturalists’ Society. Early precocity was swamped by children, work, the fever of everyday life and she forgot what she had originally wanted to be: 45 years were to pass before she won the Cinnamon Press Novel Writing Award with her first novel, which was published in 2011. Her first poetry collection, River is the Plural of Rain, was published by Oversteps Books in 2009. She has worked as a creative writing tutor in a prison and currently works as a freelance creative writing tutor and writer. Rebecca blogs at:

Rebecca Gethin has already made her mark as a brilliant observer of the natural world, but A Handful of Water is something else again. This new collection – always composed, meditative, inquisitive, tender – has a powerful and passionate interior life, whether of family, of first world war soldiers, or of prisoners and their visitors (here the writer is drawing on her experience of working in prisons). Although the tone of the poems is quiet, cool and respectful, the verbal invention is exceptional, and the variety of forms exciting. Every poem turns up sudden surprises, wonderful delights. It’s like reading a pool, beneath which there is a delirium of movement and feeling. The assurance is startling. If you want a journey into the unknown, read A Handful of Water. It’s utterly stunning.
