Poetry. THE LIZARD CATCHERS is Jones's first American collection. It includes art work by Nick Holly, also a Swansea, Wales, native. "The recipient of several awards for his work—which includes six other collections of poetry and one collection of short stories—Peter Thabit Jones's new body of poems is diverse and touching, thanks to his sensitive yet powerful use of language. With his wide range of subject matter and his dynamic way of representing intense emotions, his beautifully crafted poems engage us in the real world. There is a selection of poems for children towards the end of the book, all lively and concise, including the emotive 'Some people in other lands'"—Clare Maynard.
