              Notes from a Bright Field (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Cook, Rose

              Rose Cook's Notes From a Bright Field is 'a single quiet path, in and out', capturing the transitory beauties of the everyday: a mother's ashes imagined as 'Lux flakes'; the 'fruit-gummed glass' of a cathedral. Where the poems' themes are of nature, loss and the spiritual, these ...are grounded in concrete imagery like 'the clack-clack of the shell and the bones'. Rose Cook is one of the South-West's best loved poets. An Apples & Snakes poet, she is a regular performer of her work, and is co-founder of the poetry and performance groups One Night Stanza and Dangerous Cardigans. In their transparency and deceptive simplicity Rose Cook's poems reveal pure and hidden depths in nature, memory and loss, celebrating and questioning the fragility of everyday interactions. To read Notes From a Bright Field is to be renewed in body, mind and spirit. Anthony Wilson Rose Cook's poems are often poignant, reflecting the many variables of ordinary lives, but always with a lightness of touch, an acceptance of what it is to be human, and a singular inwardness that delights.

              Strange Fruits is a collection of poems written by Maria C. McCarthy, published to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, the charity that helped her friend Karen McAndrew in the last weeks of her life. Maria is a poet of remarkable skill, whose work offers surprising glimpses... into our 21st-century lives - the 'strange fruits' of our civilisation or lack of it - shot through with meditations on the past and her heritage as 'an Irish girl, an English woman'. Maria McCarthy writes of the poetry process: 'There is a quickening early in the day' ('Raising poems'). A quickening is certainly apparent in these humane poems, which are both natural and skilful, and combine the earthiness and mysteriousness of life. I read strange fruits with pleasure, surprise and a sense of recognition. Moniza Alvi, author of Europa. All profits from the sale of this book go to Macmillan Cancer Support, Registered Charity Number 261017. Strange Fruits is the fourth project from WordAid, a collective of poets dedicated to raising money for charity.

              Canterbury Tales on a Cockcrow Morning (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Maggie Harris brings warmth and humour to her Canterbury Tales on a Cockcrow Morning, and tops them with a twist of calypso. Here are pilgrims old and new: Eliot living in 'This Mother Country' for half a century; Samantha learning that country life is not like in the magazines. ...There are stories of regret, longing and wanting to belong; a sense of place and displacement resonates throughout. Finely tuned to dialogue and shifting registers of speech, Maggie Harris' fast-moving prose is as prismatic as the multi-layered world she evokes. Her Canterbury Tales, sharply observed, are rich with migrant collisions and collusions. John Agard, Playwright, poet and children's writer Maggie Harris takes us by the hand and says, look again. Look, and listen to the people who matter, these everyday people we might otherwise miss whether we are on the train, in a Chinese take-away, sitting next to an empty barstool. This is vivid and compelling writing, but most of all - like the original - it's great storytelling. Sarah Salway, Canterbury Laureate Six hundred years on, here are Canterbury's new pilgrims, as diverse and garrulous as Chaucer's were, and speaking in a variety of Englishness which, like Chaucer's, are hybrid and poetic. Maggie Harris creates stories about the nitty-gritty of 'ordinary' folk's lives, which, although often dealing with tragedy, pettiness, and awareness of loss, are also infused with warmth, humour and optimism. Each brief story or sketch gives voice to a character ... whose tales quickly draw you in, and sometimes, unwittingingly, suggest a world of experience. Lyn Innes, Emeritus Professor of Postcolonial Literatures, University of Kent

              The Fire in Me Now tackles human imperfections head on and with great energy. In a forthright, at times angry and always eloquent series of poems, Michael Curtis takes us from managed rage through moving reflections on mortality and wry observations on the complications of love t...o a hard-won, uncompromising state of acceptance.

Michael Curtis grew up in Liverpool, attended Oxford and Sheffield universities, has worked in library and cultural services, literature development and events management and lives in Kent. He is widely published in magazines and anthologies and has given readings and workshops in England, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Belgium, France, Finland, Germany, Latvia, and the UN Buffer Zone, Cyprus. He was Writer in Residence for the Arts Council, England Great Expectations conference, the Metropole Arts Centre, Folkestone, the Maison de Poesie, Nord/Pas de Calais in France, and the Writers and Translators House, Ventspils, Latvia. His work has been studied and translated at the Universities of Liege, Bucharest and Munich and broadcast on radio in England, Ireland, Romania and Latvia. Horizon, his eleventh collection of poems, was set on the Isle of Man and launched at the first Manx Litfest in 2012.

              Les Animots: A Human Bestiary offers fresh insights into how humans share the planet with a wide range of creatures, great and small. This remarkable collaboration between seasoned poet and artist subverts our common perceptions of familiar and unfamiliar animals by approaching t...hem with knowledge, compassion and robust, good humour. Gordon Meade is a Scottish poet who lives in Fife. Over the past twenty years or so he has divided his time between his own writing, devising creative writing courses for vulnerable young people in a variety of settings, and reading from his own work in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. He has been a Fellow in Creative Writing at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Writer in Residence for Dundee District Libraries, and a Royal Literary Fellow attached to the University of Dundee. Les Animots is his eighth collection of poetry. Douglas Robertson was born in Dundee and now lives in Hampshire. An artist and teacher, he has exhibited widely throughout Scotland and the UK and his work is in many public collections, including the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Fife. He has collaborated with numerous writers, and his recent collaboration with Donald S. Murray, The Guga Stone, was included in The Guardian's top 25 nature books of 2013.
