The Twelve Days of Christmas : Day 1

Posted on December 01, 2015 by Rebecca Robinson

To get us into the festival spirit here at Inpress we're looking back at some of our favourite books from 2015. It's...

Casting our minds back to January, we got the year off to a flying start with two brilliant collections from female writers.


Rebecca's Choice: (O) by Sophie Mayer

Sophie Mayer’s fourth published poetry collection, (O), is a bittersweet lovesong to zombies, tattoos, fathers and sisters, Katniss and Pussy Riot, Artemis and suffragists. In three parts – I DO, I UNDO, I REDO – the poet undoes herself and all around her in a cycle that takes her back to the start as it comes to an end. Spirited, politicised, contemporary and Classical, these poems bring a poetic voice to the women that have lived in the cracks of history. Buy it here.

Yen-Yen's Choice: Millie & Bird by Avril Joy
This collection explores the world of the Costa Prize winning story 'Millie and Bird': a northern landscape of fragile lives bound by the invisible threads of place. A soldier flees the enemy, a woman buries a pig, a girl goes in search of her father - these are stories of northern lives, of what is lost and found, and of how we survive. These are the people who live in Paradise, their lives fragile, caught like sheep’s wool on wire, each with its own unique story and secret heart. Buy it here.
