  • Finding a Leg to Stand Onby Connie Bensley

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Connie Bensley's poems are sharply satirical, often poking fun at social pretence and suburban pretension.

Hers is a seemingly small world but one which spans a whole universe of everyday life. Finding a Leg to Stand On is a retrospective... more...

  • Guffby Brendan Kennelly

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Brendan Kennelly's Guff is both mouthpiece and mouthed off, Devil's advocate and self critic, everyman and every writer consumed by self-doubt and self-questioning. The book of Guff is about words writing the man. Words drive him into the cave of himself where he questions everything including words that seem to constitute answers and answers that... more...

Readers who admired Philip... more...

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 10.99

    Ireland Is Changing Mother is the latest collection from Rita Ann Higgins: provocative and heart-warming poems of high jinx, jittery grief and telling social comment by a gutsy, anarchic chronicler of the lives of the Irish dispossessed, before as well as since the demise of the Celtic tiger. 'It shouldn't be unusual to hear a smart, sassy, unabashed,... more...

  • Day Releaseby Aidan Rooney-Cespedes

His widely published, prize-winning poems range from the rich imaginings of "Retro Creation" through various locales -- from County Monaghan, where he was born and raised, Paris and the literary past, to North America, where he now lives. As it blends the colloquial... more...
