Review of With Paper for Feet in Poetry Salzburg Review

We have a review of Jennifer A McGowan’s With Paper for Feet in Poetry Salzburg Review no 31 Autumn 2017 from Colin Pink.

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.
