A year after her young son's diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes, Patricia Debney spent six weeks writing in a beach hut on the North Kent coast. From the often bleak, always shifting winds and seas, prose poems of loss and love emerged.

 

"Littoral is a sustained and sparkling piece of sea watching, chiefly through a cut down prose that concentrates on much the same things as verse would. So it looks to understand, to note and to register phenomenon as meaning. In doing so it speaks of patience, precision and the way one reads one’s life into nature — gingerly, with due courtesy and humility. The process is an essential part of the domain of prose poetry, combining the sobriety of reportage with the transformations of poetry." —George Szirtes
