A lovely review

A really nice and thoughtful review of Selected Poems.


  1. I was at Queens yesterday for a job interview and on the way back discovered the renowned 'No Alibis' bookstore. I popped in not really knowing what I was looking for, some poetry maybe... and came away with ' Selected poems'.
    Id heard Moyra reading in Limavady last year.
    Im a big Norman MacCaig fan and I hav'nt really found a poet I enjoyed as much.....Till Now !
    Moyra's poems touch you, inspire you ,, fill you with magic, and when you finish reading one you find yourself whispering to yourself ,,, ' I loved that'
    A beautiful book of poems and an equally beautiful cover too,, ,, i'd highly recommend it!.....Chris

  2. Thank you for your lovely comment Chris - hope you enjoy the new book too if you come across it.
