Two recent book reviews

I’ve published a couple of book reviews lately....

One appears in the latest issue of Poetry Ireland Review (90), and is on Catherine Walsh’s book City West. My review is not available online, but it does incorporate (and improve upon) a piece I previously posted here. The whole issue (edited by Peter Sirr) looks good, though, so keep an eye out for (and if you can, buy) it.

Also keep an eye out for/buy the new issue of the Belfast political and cultural journal Fortnight (453, June/July 2007). It includes my review of Maurice Scully’s most recent volumes, Sonata and Tig. Again, it’s not online, but it is also partially based on an earlier piece that is (to give you a taste)....

Hi Mike -

Thanks for the plug and just to let you know... we are working on a new site that'll include the latest PIR online (including the archives from issue one on)

Lots to look forward to... we hope.

Nice to see you standing up to be counted for Scully.

Hoping to get my hands on your own book too, soon.
