At the Storm’s Edgeis a debut collection by Frank McMahon,whose poems of love and fury revel in a keen sense of the natural world and a stark understanding of humanity’s fragile place in the broad sweep of history. Acutely observed and laced with arresting imagery, his writing is full of “music arcing back to a vanishing world”, in which the personal and the political are wound delicately together and sing out from the page in potent harmony. Never sentimental nor didactic, McMahon is a poet who thinks deeply and respects his readers; a poet who tells the truth but tells it slant.
It will be launched on January 30th at The Fleece Hotel, Cirencester,at 6pm, RSVP to Frank Please.
