Jamais Vu is a hall of mirrors. In these marvellous and haunted new poems Perry observes a life that may be his or may be ours. Nothing and everything matters. Yet all is exactly as it should be, glimpsed and unanswerable. A startling, disorentating, and tender book of poems.”

Annemarie Ní Churreáin

author of The Poison Glen 


“A mystical and epic collection of iridescent poems: within are smooth, arrow-shaped flowers of memory, story, and a darkly tilted earth.

     Step into these worlds and pay attention to each word: they are all crucial clues to the sound of love.”

Gregory Betts

author of Finding Nothing: The VanGardes


“Acute and searching, Paul Perry’s gaze moves like the beam of a lighthouse, illuminating the contours of what was and what is, full of grace for the possibilities of what could be. Jamais Vu leads us on a spectacular waltz down halls both familiar and forgotten, with that most sibylline partner: time.”
