A Drink with Camus After the Match


‘A Drink With Camus After The Match is by turns entertaining, challenging, and moving. Its many memorable poems show a sensitivity to the nuances of everyday language, an intense identification with place, and a wry understanding of character. Nell Farrell is a writer to watch, writing wonderfully well.’ — Ian Parks

‘Whether writing about football or Belgium, allotments, or orang-utans, Nell Farrell shows us the world in moments of compassion and epiphany. This collection positively hums with the stubbornness of life.’ — Suzanne Batty
