    Kennys Bookshop had the privilege of welcoming Dani Gill to read from her debut poetry collection 'After Love'.

    About the Book

    Every person is like a piece of gold. If you were a gold ring, a gold watch, a gold chain, you could say "I am a ring, a watch, a chain", but these are temporary shapes. In truth, you are just gold – that is your essence, no matter how the shape changes.

    After Love explores identity, change and recovery after the end of a long-term relationship.

    Breaking waves, scattered buttons, disillusionment, enlightenment. I just gobbled it up... a really special book.
    Sara Baume

    Dani Gill's poems are like suitcases to be unpacked, word by word, until there is nothing left but the feeling of a feeling. A lasting debut. - Simon Van Booy

    Delicate and yet powerful poems, a paused and poignant poetry collection, not daring to gloss over or skim the suffering and pain that the time After Love can bring. Mermaids, floating the the sea bring calm when you least expect it, water a cleansing motif throughout. Essential love poems. - Elaine Feeney
