Drunk Muse Press

Wildly good poetry books 

PRE-ORDERS NOW ACCEPTED FOR SHARON BLACK'S NEW BOOK, 'THE RED HOUSE'. Sharon's sequence of poems zooming in on the artefacts of the last silk spinning mill in France opens out to explore our own relationships with time, place and community. These taut and wonderfully observed poems typify a poet who has an unerring knack for winning awards - and amplify why that is no surprise.

Dareen Tatour
MY THREATENING POEM - THE MEMOIR OF A POET IN OCCUPATION PRISONS

Passionate, direct and rich with humanity in the face of brute force and dehumanisation, Dareen Tatour recalls her experience from arrest through imprisonment for the 'crime' of writing defiant poetry. This book, published in translation from Arabic to English for the first time, is a testimony of the power of language, poetry and the human spirit to overcome violent authority.
