Tony Curtis

folk

Tony Curtis's new collection grows out of his fascination with the everyday, the quirky, the downright extraordinary. These are poems wrapped up in love and death, friendship
and memory, madness and music - with folk at the heart of every one of them. He has a wonderful ability to express great depth of feeling with deceptive simplicity.

Wheel

Michael O'Neill

Wheel

"Michael O'Neill's poems often begin by cutting straight to the point. This makes for great vividness and the sense that we are right at the heart of things, allowing the poet to be learned or allusive or private without losing contact with the real. Wheel is a book of sympathy and insight that takes its place in your mind unforgettably." Bernard O'Donoghue
