The Long Take

Robin Robertson

Winner of the Goldsmiths Prize 2018 

Winner of the Walter Scott Prize 2019

Walker, a young Canadian recently demobilised after war and his active service in the Normandy landings and subsequent European operations. Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and unable to face a return to his family home in rural Nova Scotia, he goes in search of freedom, change, anonymity and repair.

We follow Walker through a sequence of poems as he moves through post-war American cities of New York, Los Angles and San Francisco.
