will be launching his book, New and Collected Poems
at this free evening event.
Highlights from five decades of writing; charting the poet's life from Canadian roots to immigration to the UK, and his remarkable journey from agnosticism to Christianity to Sufi Islam.
Paul Sutherland has been writing and publishing poetry since 1970, with ten collections to his name. This monumental new book includes all the significant pieces from that period, along with new and unpublished works, constituting a personal epic that spans four and a half decades of writing. The collection is in turn heartfelt, philosophical, and beautifully lyrical, as Sutherland lays bare for the reader his experiences and perspectives at once particular and universal. Completely unique, this is an unflinching exploration of a life lived through language.
Free event - all welcome, but please book in advance.
