Fresh from her appearance at StAnza poetry festival, Anne Pia launches Transitory, her first collection of poetry.

Praise for Transitory:

'The 'small and continuing dialogues in my own life' which Anne Pia presents to us in this deeply felt and sensuous collection widen out to span continents of feeling. They move from 'Asian bars on Gothic sidestreets' to the 'tendernesses of tea' through landscapes of loss and fulfilment, interrogating every aspect of lived moments in graceful, supple and sharply observed poems. A real pleasure to read.' – AC Clarke
