Coming to South Wales, T. S. Eliot Prize–winning poet Philip Gross lived on the banks of the River Taff near Quakers Yard. Here, his poems and journals from that encounter meet the visual responses of artist Valerie Coffin Price, grounded through walking in an immediate engagement with place. Together they unfold past and present landscapes in a subtle creative conversation with each other's art and ways of seeing, as well as with the river itself. The result is A Fold in the River, a stunning collection of poetry and original artwork.
