Let the wounded speak by Antony Mair (ISBN 978-1-906856-80-9), price £8 plus p&p
Antony Mair has enjoyed a varied working life, both in the legal profession and as an estate agent in France. His poetry ranges widely, touching on slavery, gay identity, the trauma of war, Muslim radicalisation and abuse in the Roman Catholic church. Despite his clear-sighted view of this wounded world, he is also hopeful that love brings healing and hope.
Antony will be reading at the Torbay Poetry Festival next month, so I am pleased to publish this book in time for him to present it at the festival.
I am careful not to swamp our readers with too frequent newsletters; but all being well there will be another new Oversteps book next month, before a bit of a break until the New Year. I hope you’ll find time to read ‘Let the wounded speak‘ before I write to announce the next one. Remember that you can click the Follow button in the right hand margin, to make sure you don’t miss any news.
