A BOOK OF FRAGMENTS & DREAMS
Price: £9.99 +p&p
Published: 23rd March 2017
A Book of Fragments and Dreams is our tribute to Rebecca McManus, a young poet of tremendous promise, a great friend of Unthank Books who was tragically killed in a hit-and-run incident only days after graduating from the University of East Anglia in 2014.
The poems collected here show that Rebecca had already found her voice and was well on the way to achieving her ambition of becoming a recognized poet. Her voice is distinct, silky and songful, her poems romantic and dreamy yet unflinching. They suggest that more was to come, that she was soon to flower, mature into an important and vivid writer.
It was Rebecca’s dream that she would one day have a volume of her poems published. It is a dream that has now been realised.
A Book of Fragments and Dreams will be launched on 23rd of March at the Writers’ Centre Norwich with an event featuring readings from the book by friends and other poets.
