Jenny Hockey

Jenny Hockey received a New Poets Award from New Writing North in 2013, soon after retiring from a Chair in Sociology at the University of Sheffield. Many of the poems in this collection explore experiences of grief and loss, love and remembering, mirroring her academic research and writing in these areas. The collection moves from the beginning to the end of the day, and from the familiar world of home to unknown travel destinations and their imagined challenges.
