the men I keep under my bed
“it’s not very feminist
to consider myself a mouldy slut,
I’ve agency over my body
and all that 21st-century shite”
A young woman wakes feeling raw and tender after a one-night stand. She leaves a strange man sleeping in her bed and goes running. Marked by the anxiety of living in a city that does not feel like home, she must face the memories and men kept under her bed.
Falling in love with broken things
Falling in love with broken things can be described as a coming-of-age narrative. Alive with crisp images, the poems range from childhood memories of freedom and enchantment to the uncertainties of adolescence and young adulthood.
Unflinchingly, they look at early experiences of loss, at complex and ambivalent family relationships and the mysteries of love and heartbreak. It is a first collection that will resonate with and delight readers, a book they won’t want to put down until they have finished it in one sitting.
The Cantankerous Molly Darling
Molly Darling wants life to be as simple as wellies and porridge – this is rural Ireland after all.
Instead, Mum’s hiding in the attic; Dad’s run away, leaving only a PowerPoint to explain; her sister has a ham sandwich for a fiancé; there’s a boy and THE silence; her BFF will stop at nothing to go viral; and the chickens are missing. It’s enough to make any girl cantankerous. But she’ll fix it all. Easy, right?
