Where, the Mile End, Irish poet Julie Morrissy’s debut collection, embodies an energetic lyricism that whips through Europe and North America with humour, curiosity and a distinct edginess. Morrissy’s lines track emotional, physical, and geographical change, as she intimately links the vitality of two continents: the snow, the streets, the sensual memories. Where, the Mile End reimagines the places we inhabit, the moments we remember, the things we long for.

Praise for Where, the Mile End:

“Humming with energy and startlingly fresh, these poems crack through the surface of weather and geography and illuminate all that is revealed. Morrissy’s deftly paced, musical use of language draws us into her closely observed world where we accompany her with fascination from place to place to place.”
—Jane Urquhart, award-winning author of The Night Stages and Some Other Garden
