Paul Durcan's public readings are simply unforgettable. A winner of the Lifetime Achievement Irish Book Award, he has been one of the most sustaining forces in Irish poetry for more than four decades. The author of more than twenty collections of poetry, most recently, The Days of Surprise, and a former, Ireland Professor of Poetry, he is a member of Aosdána. If you have never seen him live, now is your chance. He is introduced by poet Afric McGlinchey.
‘Durcan is a God. He can break your heart in a supermarket or petrol station. He is unafraid, masterful and exactly what this world needs more of: wild abandon, wild love and sheer mad genius.’ – Alice Sebold
