More than 50 poets from all over the world explore the many meanings and connotations of the word ‘home’.
Hailing from places as diverse as India and Italy, Poland and Pakistan, Canada and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, together they present an updated picture of a changing country while, at the same time, expanding the very definition of ‘writing from Ireland’.
This is writing in itself being a kind of home-building, not least at a time when so many borders, physical and psychological, are under threat of closure across the world.
