Three superb Irish poets showcase their latest collections.
In Vona Groarke’s stunning Link, the world is personified, entering a conversation with the narrator, Irish, about what it is to be human and survive, particularly during a pandemic.
Victoria Kennefick explores women’s hunger whether for food, acknowledgement, or love, drawing a line between past and present, in her brilliantly inventive debut collection Eat or We Both Starve.
While John McAuliffe celebrates twenty years’ work considering the domestic, family life, day-to-day living, football and friendships filtered through his unique perspective in Selected Poems. Presented in partnership with Centre for New Writing and Creative Manchester.
