Book Launch: Growing Up in Colour by Maurice Devitt
Wednesday 3 October 2018
6.30pm | All welcome
The poems in Maurice Devitt’s marvellous debut collection inhabit mysterious
indoor/outdoor spaces, furnished in the ‘delinquency of winter’, where we discover ‘damp traces of ourselves’ in the secret and colourful lives of animate, and inanimate objects.
— Eleanor Hooker, author of A Tug of Blue (Dedalus)
Maurice Devitt celebrates what it is to be human in these poems of wit and wisdom. With his distinctive narrative style and eye for vivid detail, he moves deftly between playfulness and seriousness, creating poems that offer both solace and delight.
— Jane Clarke, author of The River (Bloodaxe)
