Stories & Lies – new poetry is launched

We’re delighted to announce the launch of our latest poetry title – Stories & Lies which showcases a trio of poets as they ask – how can we ever get our full family story when some people stray, some stay put, some go to any lengths to hide their past and others invent?

Three very different poets create the stories that need to be told in order to explore ideas of belonging and leaving, exile and expatriation, family and self. In poems that range from the surreal to the conversational we glimpse relationships across generations, moving from Ireland to the north of England to New England via the Midwest and Eastern Europe. From the most intimate poems to the expansive, these portraits reveal the universal in the personal, the extraordinary in these ‘ordinary’ families.

The book was launched in November at the Poetry Cafe in London’s Covent Garden.

Pamela Johnson, Jennifer Grigg and Jane Kirwan each read and then signed books for a full house. Standing room only!
