              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.

              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. In a world of continuing conflict, rampant technology and challenged values The Fire in Me Now is a powerful, telling collection, which responds with articulate urgency to our current condition. 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.

              The Light Box (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The Light Box places the personal alongside classic myths, the imagined lives, and afterlives, of ordinary people, cultural icons, and those depicted in their art. Stanley Spencer, Margaret Thatcher, two men kissing in an airport arrivals hall; in Rosie Jackson's hands, 'the ordi...nary becomes unfamiliar and scarred with legend'. Rosie Jackson works with creative writing and the arts in community and health settings. She has degrees from Warwick and York, has taught at the University of East Anglia, and is widely published. She lives near Frome in Somerset. It's a long time since I was so enchanted with a body of poems; these haunt my imagination with their deft sleights-of-hand, shifting personae, lightly-handled depths of wit, heart-intelligence, compassion, perceptiveness. They intrigue, seduce, move, invite question. What gives Jackson's work its strength and rarity is her merging of the numinous with the power of the sensory world. Roselle Angwin, author of All the Missing Names of Love Stonking good poems. Jo Bell, author of Kith The Light Box expertly explores the territory of both heart and spirit. Confidently crafted poems, by turns intimate and expansive, bring together emotional authenticity and sparkling imagination. A richly rewarding collection. Stephen Boyce, author of The Sisyphus Dog Detail after stunning detail exposes rapture, fear, longing. These poems will make your battered heart beat fast again. Claire Crowther, author of Silents

              Notes from a Bright Field
                

              Notes from a Bright Field (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Cook, Rose

              • RRP: $42.50

              • Backorder UK

              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.
