The painting on the cover is by Joyce Shee, her interpretation of a photo she once saw, I fell in love with it. It stirs memories of a date. Going to the cinema on a rainy Limerick night, passing the railing of my grandfathers house in Pery Square.
These poems are dredged from some spaces deep within my brain and heart.

Introducing Fanny and Victorian Jack, the first book from Lynne DM Noble from her new series of children’s books. The book is illustrated by her husband Michael Hutchinson.
Fanny and Victorian Jack is the first of a series of books written especially for children. Fanny has Asperger’s syndrome and is passionate about nature. Jack appears from Victorian London and shows Fanny a world of poverty and hardship that she could never have envisaged.
Fanny desperately wants to help Jack and his family find a way out of the poverty they are in. Hesitatingly, she begins to explore what she can do to help but not before tragedy strikes Jack’s family. Fanny found that it is the things that we often throw away that became the most useful in helping Jack and his family. Along the way, Fanny finds herself transported into the slums of London and she learns first-hand about the reality of life for the Victorian Poor.
This book can be read alone by confident readers and provides insight into an age which is very different from ours. It is useful for aiding understanding in school projects on this era. Younger readers may like to read this with an adult as it is written to aid discussion and increase a child’s understanding of how the past has affected the age we are living in now. The story is intended to extend and develop a child’s vocabulary.
Finally, the story is designed to raise awareness of some of the challenges of living with Asperger’s Syndrome.

Introducing the new title from author D.J. Maris, Living In Liguria charts his move to Liguria, a crescent-shaped region in northwest Italy, its Mediterranean coastline known as the Italian Riviera.
With a very limited knowledge of the Italian language the author managed to settle into everyday life and pursue the activities of walking, cycling and exploring the architecture of both Liguria and places further afield. He expanded his experiences of the routine of shopping, the preparation of at least three different pasta dishes as well as inadvertently finding ways to be fined as he travelled by train. His spoken Italian did not get far beyond the important phrases of ‘due birra’ and ‘cappucino et brioches’ but he did learn to understand much of what he heard. In addition he travelled to other regions in Italy and the neighbouring countries of France, Switzerland and Austria.
