"Stopgap Grace feels like the chronicles of a ghost drifting from city to city, down labyrinthine streets where history bleeds from coffee shop walls and each moment of pause is shattered by the juxtaposition of change. It is both celebratory and melancholy, like a love letter to the world on the eve of its destruction. McCarthy’s debut collection is a work of spellbinding beauty."
My debut poetry collection Stopgap Grace is now out from Salmon Poetry.
I´m excited to announce this to the world as it´s the culmination of about 10 years of work, cropped, chopped, scented and seasoned and packaged ever so deftly between a cracking cover by Jennifer Bada. I´ll also be embarking on a few readings and launches, so check out the Tour page and come along and say hi.
