Breakfast With Swallow
by Moira Andrew
‘Moira Andrew's poems are funny, quirky and fresh. They offer shrewd observations of older generations with profound insight into the strangest regions of our own lives. There are poems which paint landscapes of intense colour and fierce heat, brought together in Breakfast with Swallows.’ Alison Brackenbury
