What other poetry books have you been reading lately?
I’ve been re-reading Manuel Iris’ The Parting Present / Lo Que Se Irá and finding a few more layers to it. Mary Ford Neal’s debut Dawning makes for delicious reading. I’ve also been tucking into the poetry and prose on offer in a number of anthologies- “Puentes” published by Revista Purgante, “Overcome” by Fevers of the Mind poetry blog. Robin McNamara’s debut Under a Mind’s Staircase out with Hedgehog Poetry is also brilliant, as is Nikki Dudley’s I’d better let you go, out with Beir Bua Press. And I always come back to Warsan Shire, Clifton, Neruda and Ada Limon.
