Kit Fan's As Slow As Possible is a book of changes, of unlikely bridges between far-flung places and times, a collection of shape-shifting, trans-migrant poems that travel across geographies and time zones.

There are poems about the slow life of trees which establish links across time and space, about environmental catastrophe, art in war zones, artworks that travel across time, all of them reflecting on mortality and survival.

Divided into three parts, the book weaves back and forwards between East and West, past and present, art and memory, pivoting around a central sequence called `Genesis', an uncanny re-telling of Chinese creation myths in the language of the Authorised Version.

The first part of the book is a brilliantly chromatic travelogue, while the collection ends with a more grounded sequence, `Twelve Months', focusing on a kind of diurnal poetic house-keeping, based on the poet's migrant life in Yorkshire.
