Hear work from two new debut collections from Scotland-based poets K Patrick and Marjorie Lotfi.
K Patrick's poetry has appeared in Poetry Review, Granta and Five Dials, and was shortlisted for The White Review Poet's Prize in 2021. Their debut novel, Mrs S was selected as an Observer Best Debut of the Year, and K was named a Granta Best of Young British Novelists for 2023. Their forthcoming collection Three Births manoeuvres through marriage and divorce, nature writing and 20th Century literary figures, culminating in the subtle but powerful message that we should be able to inhabit the body we want to and love freely within this.
Marjorie Lotfi's award-winning debut collection The Wrong Person to Ask is a book of two halves, each a meditation on home, both the places where we begin and end up in our lives. From a childhood in Iran dislocated by revolution to life in America and then Scotland, these poems ask what it means to come from somewhere else, what we carry with us when we leave, and how we land in a new place and finally come to rest.
