A Gift of Rivers by Kate Foley

Regular price £8.99

Unit price per 

only -1 left in stock

A new collection of poems about finding love in advancing years and the upheaval of moving country in fulfilment of that love.

From award-winning lesbian poet Kate Foley, a follow-up to her 2015 Arachne Press collection The Don’t Touch Garden which charted her adoption and childhood during WWII (also available as an audio book).

Kate Foley is a much published and respected poet with many awards to her name. This, her 8th collection is made from meeting, migration and marriage: poems reflecting the journey of one poet and her wife, across linguistic and geographical boundaries – and, with Brexit in the offing, it’s far from over yet.

Foley’s writing has all the ingredients of a good conversation – interesting topics, fact as well as speculation, courage and curiosity, generosity of spirit and clarity of expression. And, as always, wit. Just sit down and enjoy it.
R V Bailey
