Don Paterson’s collection of poetry starts from the premise that the crisis of mid-life may be a permanent state of mind. ‘Zonal’ is an experiment in science-fictional and fantastic autobiography, with all of its poems taking their imaginative cue from the first season of ‘The Twilight Zone’ (1959-1960), playing fast and loose with both their source material and their author’s own life. Narrative and dramatic in approach, genre-hopping from horror to ‘Black Mirror’-style sci-fi, ‘weird tale’ to metaphysical fantasy, these poems change voices constantly in an attempt to get at the truth by alternate means.
