BLACK and BLUE: a sequence of sonnets
Cathy Galvin's emotionally stunning first collection of poems
Cathy Galvin has roots in Coventry, West Yorkshire and
Connemara: she now lives in London. A journalist, her work has appeared
in many national and international journals.
She co-founded the Sunday Times-EFG Short Story Award
and is an associate editor of the Warwick Review.
She edited Red, the Waterstone's anthology of new writing
and is director and founder of the UK's leading promoter
of short fiction writing, The Word Factory.
Praise for Black and Blue:
"A crown of sonnets seems at first an intractable
and even intimidating prospect. When a writer
confidently inhabits its space, its spaces within
spaces, the crown becomes an arena of grace.
Cathy Galvin's Black and Blue is such a performance.
Her sequence moves brilliantly through and over
those spaces with drama, immediacy and power."
