It is a real honor to have my poems included in Carcanet’s latest edition of the Oxford Poets series. In the 2010 edition of this respected anthology I’m surrounded by such wonderful poets as David Shook and Jim Carruth — both of whom make being in this collection an extra treat because they are good and they are friends. Frankly, it is worth buying this anthology for either of them alone. But you don’t just get them (and me) you get a total of 9 new voices spanning decades and continents. And for those of you thinking — I’ll just buy Ryan’s solo collection when it comes out — Well, there’s poems in this anthology which you won’t find in my full collection. So, snap this up, it is worth it. Have a look / make a purchase HERE.
