Mooney’s Folk on the Globe 100 of 2011


A few days back the Globe released its 100 best books of 2011 list and it’s good to see a range of authors and titles making the list. The poetry section is where I’m focusing, however and am delighted to see Jake Mooney’s Folk making a strong appearance among such other poets as Susan Musgrave, Phil Hall, and Ken Babstock. Sonnet L’Abbé had some favourable things to say about the book in a review she did for Globe Books recently, which is fine praise to complement its shortlisting for the Dylan Thomas Award earlier this year. A fine book well worth a read by anyone.
