  • Cover scan of Hole In The Wall
    Hole In The Wall
    Judi Benson - Paperback - Rockingham
    Many of the poems in this collection are hospital-based - from the author's two years as Writer in Residence at the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, working in oncology and palliative care. But just as many are about the Scottish countryside she called home, staggered speechless by sky and light, so unlike London, where she now lives.
  • Cover scan of Hill Of Doors
    Hill Of Doors
    Robin Robertson - Hardback - Picador
    Charged with strangeness and beauty, 'Hill of Doors' is a haunted and haunting book, where each successive poem seems a shape conjured from the shadows, and where the uncanny is made physically present. The collection sees the return of some familiar members of the Robertson company, including Strindberg - heading, as usual, towards calamity - and the shape-shifter Dionysus. Four loose retellings of stories of the Greek god form pillars for the book, alongside four short Ovid versions.
