  • Spindriftby Vona Groarke

    The Gallery Press 2013; US$ 11.99

    POETRY BOOK SOCIETY RECOMMENDATION Groarke is superb at sidestepping or skirting the subject, the better to wrong-foot the reader and set us right down, surprised, in the middle of things . . . Spindrift is suffused with a candour, delicacy and intelligence that should win her many new readers.' ? from the Poetry Book Society citation. Vona Groarke's... more...

  • Nine Fathom Deepby David Constantine

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    Like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, David Constantine's poetry is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world.

  • Ground Waterby Matthew Hollis

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 12.99

    ?In this sparkling debut, Matthew Hollis immerses us in the undercurrents of our lives. Love and loss are buoyed by a house full of milk, an orchard underwater, the laws of walking on water.

  • Catulla et alby Tiffany Atkinson

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    Catulla et al summons up the sensual and scandalous spirit of the Latin poet Catullus -his lyricism, diatribe and bawdy -by turns wrenching, cynical and outrageous. But whereas the Roman love chronicler is a young man about town, Tiffany Atkinson's Catulla is a free-thinking female confronting modern mores with both ambivalence and uneasy embarrassment.... more...

  • What Long Milesby Kona Macphee

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

  • The Winter Sleep of Captain Lemassby Harry Clifton

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    At once a reckoning with a lost political legacy, a meditation on love, marriage and middle age, and a reaching back into foreign ancestry, The Winter Sleep of Captain Lemass is Harry Clifton's fullest and most ambitious attempt so far to bring together, in a single book, the discordant elements of an evolving Ireland, as it discovers itself, through... more...
