Many thanks to all who came to the London (10th July) and Dublin (12th July) launches for our first Gorse Editions book, SUBCRITICAL TESTS by Ailbhe Darcy and SJ Fowler, and to Niven Govinden, Colm O’Shea and Susana Medina who also read in London. Thanks also to the Sun & 13 Cantons, Soho, and Poetry Ireland for hosting us.
Pleased join us in London and Dublin to celebrate the launch of Gorse Editions No. 1, SUBCRITICAL TESTS, by Ailbhe Darcy and SJ Fowler.
News reaches us that Pádraig Ó Méalóid’s essay on Flann O’Brien for gorse no. 3, ‘The Cardinal & The Corpse: A Flanntasy in Several Parts,’ has been long-listed by the International Flann O’Brien Society in the ‘small Fahrt’ category (that is, best essay-length publication on a Flann O’Brien theme). To celebrate, we’re making the piece available on-line here. Enjoy!
About Subcritical Tests:
The nearness of nuclear holocaust, always just one clumsy accident away, forms an entry point into this record of a friendship. The poems in Subcritical Tests stubbornly make connections, ever conscious of the impending threat of annihilation. Oblique, modern, lyrical, humorous, these poems represent the range of Ailbhe Darcy and SJ Fowler‘s individual practices, modulated and melded through the collaborative process.
Coming soon from gorse editions…
