Celebrating ‘A Bluebottle in Late October’

I’m very happy that my new full collection A Bluebottle in Late October is now out with V.Press today. Thank you very much to my publisher, Sarah Leavesley for believing in my book, and to Tim Liardet and Neil Rollinson for their generous affirmations on the book’s cover and for their years of support. Thank you also to everyone else who read and commented on the book.

Because of the lockdown, I can’t have a face-to-face launch but for the next couple of weeks I am posting poems from the book on Facebook and Twitter. I hope you will take a look. Here’s the first video from Facebook,where I am reading ‘A Minor Crisis’. You can buy a signed copy of A Bluebottle in Late October from me for worldwide delivery via paypal or any card here or directly from the publisher.

Update: video Day 2. Here I am reading ‘Fruit’.
video Day 3. I am reading ‘Female Nude’. This introduces the narrator’s mother.
video Day 4. I’m reading ‘Easterly’ with chilly atmosphere.
