Abstract:

Margins, edges and coastlines abound in John McCullough's tender, humorous explorations of contemporary life and love. Spacecraft navigates the white space of the page and the distance between people, encompassing everything from lichen to lava lamps, and from the etymology of words to Brighton's gay scene. Its powerful central sequence concerns the death of the author's first partner from an AIDS-related illness. Spacecraft is a humane, spellbinding collection from the winner of the 2012 Polari First Book Prize. 'Alive to the pathos in a punctuation mark, walking through dark places with a spring in its step, Spacecraft is a marvellous book.' - Sarah Howe
