Product Description

But Now is Phyllis Perlstone’s artistic statement of intent. In this book, Perlstone employs her characteristic fractured syntax
and extraordinary visual focus, leaving you ‘dizzy with seeing’. Unusually, though, she allows us to draw near her, in her present
and her past, as she makes a personal and political reckoning.

‘what is familial quietly
quivers in art
time stalls’
from ‘Numb’
—Anna Kerdijk Nicholson


“Phyllis Perlstone’s most recent poetry collection, But Now, celebrates the trajectory of a life… Perlstone’s forte is meticulous description, metaphors built from the surrounding environment, each moment expanded to its limits… But Now is a collection of poems for our times, a warning, couched in compelling and poignant imagery.” MARGARET BRADSTOCK, Rochford Street Review
