fifty poems by Michael Gorman is a much anticipated collection from a poet who has not had a publication in almost thirty years – but as can be seen from this collection, Michael Gorman has not been idle. He is much in demand for readings and many of the poems have been included in anthologies. Here in this beautifully designed book Michael Gorman presents an amalgam of new and collected work.
The poetry is much enhanced by the many unique features of this publication. Upon picking up a copy, one is immediately aware that this is not a run-of-the-mill book. The quality of the design by Vincent Murphy of Artisan House is impressive; illustrations by the talented Joe Boske are included, and uniquely selected readings recorded by Michael Gorman are available to listen to on www.artisanhouse.ie/michaelgorman.
