1st. Pat Anthony – Place and people are inextricably linked in this evocative collection of poems. They bristle with observational details that a less skilful writer might miss – a man pedals night into day, the moon is scrawled with the arpeggios of an accordion player. Each voice here is convincing and urgent. Memorable, exact and compelling.
2nd. Mike Farren – From the first poem in this collection, I was intrigued and hooked by the strange confidence of the work: ‘Antennae’ suggests we should plug antlers from the forest floor to the sides of our heads. The pieces that follow are richly sensory – ‘summer smells of money’, the body is a quarry. Alert and attentive writing, poems suffused with an original language for memory.
3rd. Sharon Flynn – Poems that feel like recipes, full of rich details and imperatives. In one piece, surgery before pain relief is described with a clarity that makes the reader shudder. Visceral and haunting, unabashed and sharply observed, full of found material curated with skill and emotion, which is no mean feat.
This debut collection by Dominic Fisher has quickly become The Blue Nib’s No1 Seller. A collection of poems that explores ways the living and the dead meet – for lunch , in an artwork, on an allotment plot, in the city. We meet poets, artists and others engaged in the struggles and contradictions of their own times, and encounter challenges from our own.
Bloodline is the debut collection by poet Michael A. Griffith. Bloodline will publish on the 15th of December but is available now to preorder.
Michael A Griffith’s poems often start with a simple observation and then take that idea or image for an exploratory walk.
