One Thousand Nights and Counting offers a selection from 20 years of Glyn Maxwell’s unmistakable and imaginatively gifted poetic voice.

Maxwell is a poet essential to understanding our own unstable times, and few other contemporary writers give us such pause before the world we thought we knew. One Thousand Nights and Counting is the perfect introduction to one of the most imaginatively gifted poets of the age.

“Glyn Maxwell covers a greater distance in a single line than most people do in a poem” — Joseph Brodsky
