Friday's Child

May 20, 2017

Just delighted that Philip Pullman has endorsed my forthcoming book, Friday's Child, to be published later this year by John Hunt Publishing. It's an anthology of poems on suffering and redemption accompanied by a commentary from me that runs throughout the book. Philip calls it 'a wonderful collection, surprising and unfamiliarly familiar by turns. Your commentary on the poems and other pieces does exactly what’s needed to explain (where necessary) but much more to remind us that poetry is more than its meaning. I have only one regret, which is on behalf of Carol Ann Duffy: her marvellous last line has been ruined by whatever jack-in-the-Met-Office decided to change Finisterre to Fitzroy.'
