Genre:Irish Interest / Irish Poetry & Drama



Liffey Swim is the debut collection of poems from Dubliner Jessica Traynor, in which family portraits combine with myth and history to create a strikingly assured and engaging suite of poems. Delivered in a language that is at once fresh and confident, these poems have already earned the poet a number of awards and honours, and mark her out as a distinctive new talent in Irish writing. “Her finely lyrical work is informed by wide travel, a meditative intelligence and an acute sense of history, in which Dublin and its three rivers become a living metaphor for the truths and felicities of one woman’s life.” – Harry Clifton
