I Wouldn’t Start From Here is the first book considering the second-generation Irish cultural experience from its writers’ viewpoints. The great difficulty the editors had in bringing it to any kind of publication is indicative of a neglect they don’t feel to be justified. Make your own mind up about one of its authors anyway, when Ian Duhig reads from his contribution to this anthology and his other poetry, including that which reflects his work with the Irish (and other) communities in Leeds.
Ian Duhig has written seven books of poetry, most recently The Blind Roadmaker (Picador 2016), a PBS Recommendation shortlisted for the Forward Best Collection and TS Eliot Prizes. Duhig worked with the homeless for fifteen years before becoming a writer. He has won the Forward Best Poem Prize once and the National Poetry Competition twice.
Presented in association with Nottingham Irish Studies Group.
