Reviews - What do customers think about Touchwood (Salmon Poetry)?
Touchwood Aug 6, 2008
"An impeccable sense of where poetry is..." That is the strength which won Aine Miller the Patrick Kavanagh Award and which keeps her at the task of recognising when experience will self-combust into poetry, and when it will not ... or needs to be coaxed into doing so. Here is poetry as preservation, as exploration, as subversion and as celebration.
