Whimsical and tender, this poetry collection examines the commonplace and the quirky for resonance, contemplation, and verve. From an out-of-season daffodil and a chipped Limoges plate to a lipstick stain on a poem and a bee being released, it illuminates the poetry in the everyday by focusing on a single image and expanding to the cusp of something... more...

Benito Perez Galdos has been described as 'the greatest Spanish novelist since Cervantes.' His work constitutes a major contribution to the nineteenth-century novel, rivalling that of Dickens of Balzac and making him an essential candidate for any course on the fiction of the period.

The Mining Road, Leanne O'Sullivan’s third poetry collection, finds inspiration in the disused copper mines that haunt the rugged terrain around Allihies, near her home at Beara, in West Cork.

The body is the 'bad machine' of George Szirtes' latest book of poems. The sudden death of his elderly father and of his younger friend, the poet Michael Murphy, remind him how machines sources of energy and delight in their prime go so easily wrong; and that change in the body is a signal for moving on. But language too is a body. Here,... more...
