Last night, in the heart of Dublin, we had a wonderful celebration of two new books from Dedalus Press: ‘The Quick’ by the deeply talented poet  Jessica Traynor, and my new collection ‘Lies’ which draws on a decade of my translations of my poems as Gaeilge.

This book would never have come about if it weren’t for Dedalus Press – it was all the idea of my editor Pat Boran that I assemble this volume of translations, and I am so glad of his encouragement, and that of his partner Raffaela Tranchino. They have made such a beautiful object of this book. I’ve been so lucky over the years to have had the support and encouragement of many other poets  as I was writing these poems, agus ba mhaith liom buíochas ar leith a ghabháil le hAifric MacAodha, Pádraig Ó Snodaigh, Biddy Jenkinson, agus le Gabriel Rosenstock.

Dedalus are sending ‘Lies’ into the world in fantastic company this autumn, alongside beautiful books by John Kelly and Jessica Traynor​​. You may like to purchase these books from Dedalus Press here.
