Wildgoose | Sally Evans
Maeve Cartier and Eric Grysewood — fictional poet cousins — are at the centre of this novel about poetry. What makes them want to be poets? How does mutual admiration become rivalry?
Against backgrounds such as Basil Bunting’s Briggflatts, StAnza International Poetry Festival, Sandy Bell’s in Edinburgh, Portree on Skye or Durham’s Palace Green, real and fictional poets mingle, a poem is lost, a cliff is hung onto, a boy band causes problems, and two poets ultimately find their destinies.
A well-known poet and bookseller, Sally Evans edited Poetry Scotland from 1997–2018, and hosted poetry gatherings at Callander. This is her first published novel.
