Seaway: New and Selected Poems
I am exhiliratingly pleased and proud to announce that, after living in Europe for more than a decade, I finally have a poetry collection out with a European publisher. It's Seaway: New and Selected Poems, from dynamic, well-respected, Salmon Publishing, Ireland. It's to be launched November, 2008 (more about that in the goodness of time).
Those who have followed the development of my work since the 1990s will know that my poems had previously appeared in four collections from punchy small Montreal press, DC Books, from 1999-2007. The books sold well in North America, and got some good reviews, but were not widely available in the UK or Ireland, where I most often work, live, and read. So, it was time for a selection that yoked together, from my approximately 200 poems that been published previously (in pamphlet or full collection), a representative clutch - along with several newer poems. As such, the 120 pages or so of poetry includes 80 poems.
