In the sticky summer of 1998, Ruth is paying her rent by writing a book about poets. In between moments of inspiration, she visits a close friend who doesn't have long to live. She quickly forms a special bond with her friend's young son, Conor, who is facing a future without his mother - a predicament curiously not unlike Ruth's own.

Their paths soon separate as Gray moves to Paris with his girlfriend, and Ruth finds Liam, a sensible and long-suffering friend with whom she falls in love. But Ruth's eccentric upbringing lingers into adulthood. Affected by her old Aunt Jane's passion for poetry, Ruth embarks on a comprehensive book of Twentieth Century poets' lives.

This book is dominated by Stalingrad, described with a terse precision that would be envied by any poet. Joughin's second novel confirms her gift for mining tragi-comic gems from the outposts of shabby bohemia. The smell of the front line is "a cross between a morgue and a blacksmith's", while aircraft make the sky "hum night and day, as if we were sitting under the span of a huge bridge". The poetry adds poignancy, not posiness: more Larkin than Plath. Independent culture newsletter. The best in film, music, TV & radio straight to your inbox.

How to swim underwater. Push off the wall in a streamlined position, and begin to glide under the water about 6 to 8 inches under the water, and begin to do the breaststroke arms with the breaststroke kick, without coming up for a breath. This will help you stay underwater for a certain period of time without needing to come up for a breath. The arms are kind of down like the butterfly.

When Ruth and Gray meet as children while their parents play at being adults in a rackety old Bohemian house, an electricity passes between them that neither will ever forget. Their paths soon separate as Gray moves to Paris with his girlfriend, and Ruth finds Liam, a sensible and long-suffering friend with whom she falls in love. But Ruth's eccentric upbringing lingers into adulthood. Affected by her old Aunt Jane's passion for poetry, Ruth embarks on a comprehensive book of Twentieth Century poets' lives. Soon, Ruth's thoughts become haunted by the lives of the poets and dreamers she writes about, as the self-destructive talents of Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost and Philip Larkin begin to influence her in unexpected ways. Until one day, she meets Gray, and their historic chemistry is fired up once again. This vivid story full of loveable characters and big emotions is couched in wryand erotic prose. Joughin's exquisite sense of place and comic eye are prime ingredients in this page-turning novel full of elegance and humanity.
