Holland Park Press invites you to a party to celebrate the launch of The Houses Along the Wall – A Pembrokeshire poetry cycle by Karen Hayes.
The poems in this collection create a fictional history for sixteen of the houses along the Parrog near Newport, Pembrokeshire.
Traeth Mawr – Morwellan – The Boat House – Rock House – Swyn y Mor – Ty Rees Parrog stores – Atlantic House – Craig-y-mor – Bryn Alban – Ocean House – Seagull Cottage – Parrog House – Ondara House – Bryn Bach – Trenydd – St Mary’s Church
‘This is a collection to treasure and savour; a sequence about a beloved family holiday destination that sees beyond and beneath the rose-tinted view of the tourist, as it catalogues the “smell of time’s accumulated seasons ”… the tang and singe of driftwood”.’
