The latest anthology from Earlyworks
Press [has a] global scope with dispatches from Nepal, Rio, Hanoi, County
Roscommon, and Basingstoke. From this diversity, continuities and
conflicts that shape lives emerge. In the opening poem, Margaret Eddershaw
notes the 'unequal neighbours', divided by class and geography, yet
equally prone to mudslides in Brazil. Social and psychological menace are
also evident in R D Gardner's Riot Weather. Elsewhere, Gardner
taps out the tensions and ties between generations as Irish grandmothers
'in black / Are dancing death metal, at night, in the road.'
From a review by Adam Hansen.
