Rosie Garland might be better known as Mslexia Prize winning author of The Palace of Curiosities and Vixen, but she is also a poet who skillfully treads the line between performance and the lyric. Her new collection, As In Judy (Flapjack Press, 2016) is as inventive and politically engaged as her previous body of work, and ‘imagines the inner and outer landscapes we all inhabit with eloquence and grace’.

*

Jodie Hollander is an American poet visiting the UK to launch her first full collection of poems, My Dark Horses, from hot new poetry imprint, Pavilion Poetry. Interspersed with versions of Rimbaud, and always alert to the surreal comedy of the human condition, these powerful and immediate poems chart with huge passion, musicality and insight a complex journey towards familial understanding and reconciliation.

*

Witty and compelling, Charlotte Wetton’s debut pamphlet, I Refuse to Turn into a Hatstand (Calder Valley Poets), shows a young poet skillfully in charge of her material. Her spoken word album Body Politic was released in 2012.

and we will make love
on the stone flags, on the dirt of the yard,
until dusk falls, salt stiffens on cooling skin,
and the cicadas sing and sing until death.’

(Charlotte Wetton ‘In Mexico’)

The March Violets have been at the forefront of the UK's post-punk movement for over 30 years. During this time they have recorded sessions with John Peel, produced some of the scenes' most well known tracks and critically acclaimed songs which blend together atmospheric and driving melodies with poetical and sometimes abstract lyrics. Since their reunion they have used crowd funding to independently produce their first complete album Made Glorious with all new material (there have been numerous LPs and EPs collected together but not many bands have taken 30

years to make their debut album).

At the same time as the band emerging to new successes, 2013 has also been an exciting time for the bands members, with Rosie's debut published novel The Palace of Curiosities receiving glowing reviews from the national press and entering the Waterstones Top Sellers section, whilst Tom has been working on soundtracks for a number of independent US films and both Si and Jo have been producing new material through their side projects.

Don't miss this rare opportunity.

  • 16.11.2020: Guardian Poem of the Week - Rosie Garland
    16.11.2020: Guardian Poem of the Week - Rosie Garland

    Thrilled that 'Now that you are not-you' is Guardian Poem of the Week!

    "A very modern, secular kind of elegy reflects on death with a surprising lightness" - Carol Rumens

    "This week’s poem is from What Girls Do in the Dark, the latest collection by the multi-talented Rosie Garland. It stands alone, while extending the narrative of the short poem that immediately precedes it, Stargazer. The setting of Stargazer is a hospital bedside, where the dying patient’s visitor must navigate “the vertigo tilt / of old words like spread, outlook, time.” That poem ends with the metaphors that will be reconfigured in Now that you are not-you. “Doctors / murmur the names of new constellations / - astrocyte, hippocampus, glioblastoma – and calculate / the growth of nebulae; this rising tide of cells that climbs / the Milky Way of the spine to flood your head with light.”

  • April 2020 - The Night Brother, Must-Read Manchester
    April 2020 - The Night Brother, Must-Read Manchester
    Manchester Confidential chooses The Night Brother as a must-read Manchester novel!

    Dystopian classics to modern crime - Nine must-read Manchester novels

    “Fantasy, romance, sci-fi, comedy…we’ve got a genre for everyone
    There’s a very good reason Manchester is a UNESCO City of Literature, as we highlighted before its bid to join the prestigious network in 2017. Innovative publishers, diverse bookshops and a lively events scene make it an unrivalled literary melting pot.

    Rosie Garland’s The Night Brother is our historical highlight
    Ever the entertainer, Rosie Garland sung in post-punk band The March Violets and now performs ‘twisted cabaret’ as Rosie Lugosi the Vampire Queen. But she’s also a literary maverick with an array of essays, short stories and poetry to her name (much of which she also reads at spoken words events citywide) and three acclaimed novels. Her latest, The Night Brother, navigates themes of gender and identity through two siblings in Victorian Manchester. Rich and Gothic, it’s a must for fans of Angela Carter.”

  • April 2020 - The Night Brother - Best Northern Read
    April 2020 - The Night Brother - Best Northern Read

    An unexpected & encouraging piece of news!
    Northern Soul has selected 'The Night Brother' as a Best Northern Read

    Desmond Bullen, Northern Soul writer
    “In days that can seem desolate and uncertain, there’s a lot to be said for windows into a better world and, ultimately, joyfully, that is exactly the view that The Night Brother by Rosie Garland affords. Not that its window seat is cheaply achieved. Far from it.
    Rooted with disbelief-suspending specificity in Manchester at the end of the 19th century, Garland’s novel blossoms compellingly from the exquisite simplicity of its central conceit, one which owes the tiniest debt to the 1971 horror film Dr. Jekyll And Sister Hyde. Edie and her brother Gnome are joined in a very particular symbiosis, so that their singular sibling rivalry threatens to be the undoing of both. Themes that could be leaden in other hands emerge from the premise with a beautiful lightness of touch, developing into a persuasive fable of inclusivity and self-acceptance. This is a book that sings a rainbow at its end.”
