The Book of Euclid
Published by Cinnamon Press
The Book of Euclid introduces new and emerging voices in short story and poetry.
On the one hand, Jonathan Carr’s ‘The Dead Skipper’ and Nicola Warwick’s ‘The Moon on a String of Pearls’ grasp the immediacy of children’s voices without condescension. On the other, the poems of Noel Williams are concerned not with rootedness, but with departure: in pieces like ‘Tying the kite’ and ‘Last trip to Tynemouth’. Along with Patrick Riordan’s title short story, this is a collection filled with interesting characters and humane humour.
