‘I’m delighted to run the stall this year at the Poetry Book Fair. I couldn’t make it last year and I really missed this wonderful event. It’s such a joy to meet up with old friends and meet new people who love poetry.’ says publisher Bernadette Jansen op de Haar.
Our flagship title this year is The Refrain of Other People’s Lives, Arnold Jansen op de Haar’s new poetry collection, its English translation was published this year, and which deals with being an EU immigrant.
Rather a topical subject. Arnold Jansen op de Haar (1962) moved from Arnhem to London in 2014. His emigration brought everything into focus. The poems of this collection combine to form a story. What makes somebody the person he is?
