Mike Doyle: A Splinter of Glass
I found this in a local Cambridge bookshop. Now I am finding out a bit more about the author and his other writing. Born in Birmingham, UK and moved to New Zealand after the Royal Navy then settled a second time in Canada; Victoria B.C..
The poems in this ‘early book’ are pretty interesting, would love to read more from later and recent work.
There is a review of his ‘Colleceted Poems’ and information in the Malahat Review
I will have to stick with the one book I have as his most recent collection ( Collected Poems 1951-2009) seems impossible to find in the UK (at least at an affordable price) ah well, keep on searching! I believe there are two later short collections published also. A poet published in New Zealand and Canada but not Internationally is hard to find. I think I might have to try harder!
