You Do You
About the Book:
Sam Morley’s second collection comprises poetry that is image-rich, fusing the sublime with the common. Always committed to observation as a channel into discovery, You Do You merges meditations on parenthood, memory, death, the natural world and the fluctuations of pop culture and the suburban grind. The primary setting is the home, be it as a father or child or as a person perplexed by the vicissitudes of humanity. These poems start from the personal while remaining detached, and often undulate from the private world into something universal and large.
