The Air Year, Paperback / softback Book

The Air Year Paperback / softback


The Air Year is a time of flight, transition and suspension: signatures scribbled on the sky.

Bird's speakers exist in a state of unrest, trapped in a liminal place between take-off and landing, undeniably lost.

Love is uncontrollable, joy comes and goes at hurricane speed.

They walk to the cliff-edge, close their eyes and step out into the air. Caroline Bird has five previous collections published by Carcanet.

Her fifth collection, In These Days of Prohibition, was shortlisted for the 2017 T.S.

Eliot Prize and the Ted Hughes Award.
