    Combining pressing geopolitical urgency with a subtle and gentle
    lyricism, as we have come to expect from Gerry Loose, his new book
    ranges wide, broad and deep, to settle back home in the Scotland
    re-inhabited by Sweeney the king, deranged and fleeing humanity, and a
    lilting nine day walk from coast to coast across Scotland's heartland.
    With narratives from Nuremberg, which contrast city and individual
    citizens with its long and terrible past, and then stories of an island
    life - not as insular as might be imagined - in a Finland where anything
    or nothing may happen, with or without a Luger pistol, this book has a
    quiet insistence on personal experience.
    A unique take on the naming of endangered species here could be seen as
    a metaphor for what the ordinary people in these pages - and their
    would-be leaders - might in turn become.
    Expressive, formally inventive, Loose's seventh full collection night
    exposures lives right into its title: shining light into murky and
    overlooked corners which some might wish to be kept in the dark.
