And very appreciative it is too!
Here’s a taster
There’s a ribald, troubadour quality to McGowan’s poetry that reminded me strongly of the medieval French poet Francois Villon.
She retells traditional stories in a clear, conversational tone containing a generous dose of satire and wry humour. It’s a book that makes you smile.
Her clever, punchy, highly accessible writing has immediacy that I can imagine working very well as performance poetry.
The voices in McGowan’s verse are lively and compelling.
