True Tales of the Countryside
Published by The Emma Press with an introduction by Helen Ivory
Deborah Alma’s poems are gloriously pungent, teeming with colours, textures and smells. In True Tales of the Countryside, her debut collection, Alma writes vividly about sex, love and ageing in rural Shropshire and Wales, and reflects on her experiences as a mixed-race, Anglo-Indian woman.
Eyeballs pop, fresh piss steams and women come – loudly – in poems which often startle with their honesty and intimacy.
