A Fold in the Map charts two very different voyages: a tracing of the dislocations of leaving one's native country, and a searching exploration of grief at a father's final painful journey. The first part, 'Plenty', deals with family, and a yearning view of home from a new country, with all the ambiguity and doubleness this perspective entails. In the book's moving second half, 'Meet My Father', we encounter events more life-changing than merely moving abroad - a father's illness and death, the loss of that earlier plenty. The title A Fold in the Map is a nod to a phrase in Jan Morris's Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere, which describes the traveller's state of in-betweenness. In these poems of love and longing for home, family, and other loved ones, Isobel Dixon draws on a store of sensuous natural imagery, illuminating the ordinary, often with a touch of wry humour. Her accessible contemporary lyricism will speak memorably to those who have travelled, loved and lost.

"Isobel Dixon was born with the gift of lyricism as natural speech." - Clive James
