My first book was published by Tall Lighthouse. One of the poems was highly commended in the Forward Prize. TO BUY: quickest way to get a copy is to email me direct firstname.lastname@example.org or make friends on Facebook and then message me. (Almost out of this print run, so best to check with me before ordering).
Some reviews of Fizzbombs
“Under the chatty vernacular is a lovely, casual sharpness, like an unexpected hot chilli in something sold as sweet. There’s power and tenderness together here.” Cherry Smith Poetry Editor BRAND MAGAZINE
“I think that, despite being highly commended in the Forward Prize, poet Joe Duggan is at the moment under-rated. The poems in his book, Fizzbombs, are lyrical, haunting and witty.”
Saskia Sarginson in The IRISH TIMES
Stunning debut collection……… vibrant and memorable.”
Salena Godden NEW CAMDEN JOURNAL
“There’s a forgotten sector of society here that Duggan speaks directly to……As plain speaking and direct as
poetry gets” VERBAL MAGAZINE
