James Scrimgeour’s Balloons Over Stockholm takes the reader on dual trips – across the globe and into the heart and soul of the artist. The poet’s visit to Sweden is born out of necessity: he and his wife go to say goodbye to a dying relative. In the midst of the pain, we find Scrimgeour at work and, in so doing, affirming life. As never before, Scrimgeour explores the world of creativity and imagination, as well as the vast range of emotions in the human spectrum. Read this new collection by the author of The Route, We Are What We Have Loved, and Monet in the Twentieth Century.
