Barnsley main seam
This is Hutchinson's first collection of poems in English since 1985. Among its various themes are places the author has lived and travelled in love and friendship; love and sex; color-prejudice; and the sufferings and resilience of Catalans, Jews, Africans, and Irish. These poems serve to bind, and enhance, a unique body of work, recorded with passion and lyric grace over more than half a century.
