Hunting the Boar

My new collection of poems, Hunting the Boar, has been published and is ready to order from CB editions.

I've been writing some of these poems for the last four years, others are older, and many of them are situated in the south of France, where my husband's family has had a home for several generations--one great great grandfather was from the village, in the hills near the Mont Ventoux, and though he worked most of his life elsewhere, he returned to the village to retire, converting an old plaster factory /silkworm farm into a home.

The book's title "Hunting the Boar" is about one of our neighbours who, like other village farmers, loves hunting. Our favourite way of spending New Year's Eve is to go down to his house and have a drink with him around his kitchen table, with the mistral blowing outside.
