The Cork Anthology is a splendid and varied tapestry, a personal map of Cork city and county by a well known poet and journalist. It contains poetry and prose on Cork life written over the past twelve centuries by internationally acclaimed writers, and includes accounts of famine, war, street life, sport, music and people.

The Anthology is an inner geography formed over a long period symbolising a sense of place shaped by memory, culture and experience. Some of the contributors are well-known for example, Elizabeth Bowen, Derek Mahon, William Trevor, Molly Keane, and some have written especially commissioned pieces for this book. There are songs, stories, journals, poems, letters, newspaper reports and memoirs. Those who grace its pages include Charles Dickens, Michael Collins, Edmund Spenser, Edith Somerville and Christy Ring. At once deeply personal and celebratory, The Cork Anthology is a remarkable and evocative compilation of work centred on a single place.

Reviewer: Frances Devlin Glass from Republic of Ireland  
I d strongly recommend this anthology to travellers to Ireland  to anyone with Cork connections and indeed to hibernophiles. It scintillates with contrasting colours  textures  periods  personalities  landscapes and mindscapes.
