Quick Overview

<p><em><img title="Signed book" src="http://www.kennys.ie/media/wysiwyg/Signed-feature.png" alt="Signed by the Author" width="121" height="70" /></em></p> <p><em>The Windows of Graceland</em> gathers the cream of the crop from Martina Evans's five previous collections of poetry, brought up to date by a selection of new and unpublished work. The earliest poems date back to 1998 and Evans's expatriation from Ireland. A complex nostalgia for her Catholic childhood establishes a central and enduring thread in the writing, the bloody shadow of sectarian conflict commingling with a chlid's pastoral of pleated mustard kilts and corduroy paisley dresses, the sighing country roads, the blue Burnfort evening. From storyteller to free-verse fili, memorist to satirist, daughter to mother, <em>The Windows of Graceland</em> distils Evans's full poetic range and power. Paperback, signed by the author while stocks last. </p>
