Hilary Mantel picks Michael McCarthy's The Healing Station as her book of 2015!
"Michael McCarthy’s poems in The Healing Station (Smith/Doorstop) move through the blighted linguistic landscape of the stroke and dementia sufferer, patiently restoring sense and wholeness. Oddly cheering, like flowers in winter."
So says Hilary Mantel in The Guardian's Best Books of 2015 Part 1. We couldn't agree more. This title has been quietly successful since publication, it's lovely to see it get some high profile recognition!
