A Herring Famine - Adam O'Riordan

£10.00 GBP

The poems of this dazzling second collection are of contradictory impulses: of abundance and famine, of absence and presence, of endings and new beginnings. Here again are the intelligent, elegant and emotionally potent poems that are O'Riordan's trademark, yet pushes into bolder territories, from a herring famine of 1907 to the Strangeways Prison Riot of 1990.

Bounding place and time, and urging into being both the living and the dead, this crystalline collection captures the struggle, folly and wonder of the human heart.
