Ickerbrow Trig by Ickerbrow Trig
Ickerbrow Trig, the book, is simply a collection of poems written since A Cure for Woodness. As for the book’s title, it’s simply the remnant of a bonnet-bee and an exhausted pun. As a topographical feature, it exists, un-named as such on any map, though Ickerbrow is better known to followers of the Ordnance Survey as High Brown Knoll [it’s the knoll that’s turned the brow brown].
“In Michael Haslam we have a genuine major poet of the north of England” —David Wheatley, The Literary Review, on Scaplings (included in this volume)
