LAUNCH: THE GHOST IN THE LOBBY by KEVIN HIGGINS @ The 2014 Cúirt International Festival of Literature

Sunday 13th April – Galway Arts Centre, 47 Dominick Street- 4:00pm

Salmon Poetry presents the launch of The Ghost In The Lobby by Kevin Higgins

The Ghost In The Lobby is Kevin Higgins’s fourth collection of poetry.

The launch will be MCed by poet Elaine Feeney and the book will be launched by Mick Wallace TD.

Praise for Kevin Higgins’s poetry:

“His contribution to the development of Irish satire is indisputable…Higgins’ poems embody all of the cunning and deviousness of language as it has been manipulated by his many targets... it is clear that Kevin Higgins’ voice and the force of his poetic project are gaining in confidence and authority with each new collection.” Philip Coleman

“Comedy is part of his poetics, and what I especially like in his work is its swiftness of wit, its tone of buoyant contrarianism and jubilant disappointment”, Eamonn Grennan, The Irish Times

“It is a profound compliment to the quality of Kevin’s writing that you can disagree with the content and yet find yourself still reading on and appreciating the style. You’d have to say that he is one of the lead poets of his generation in Ireland at this stage.” Clare Daly T.D.

“good satirical savagery”. The Cambridge Introduction to Modern Irish Poetry, 1800-2000
Admission: Free
