The Sky's Beach is R. A. Simpson's last volume of poetry, which he completed not long before his death. However, as remarked by Peter Porter in his foreword, this collection 'is no more full of Last Things than any of his previous books - in fact it is especially rich in first instances, fresh and frightening observations of a changing world'.

Simpson was an astute observer of that world, and he recorded his findings - with characteristic honesty, understatement and wit - in poems that are spare yet sinewy, ever alert, and spiky with images that continue to startle.
