Launch of new verse novel

May 26, 2009

I’ve just launched my new verse novel, In Sight of Home, which is published by Salmon Poetry. It tells the story of an Irish woman who emigrates with her family to Australia in the 1850s; there’s also a framing narrative featuring a 40-something 21st century Irish poet living on Anglesey. More details can be found on the Salmon website at http://www.salmonpoetry.com



  1. Hi Nessa,

    How are you? Well I hope. You might remember we met in Dublin a few years back, and that you published my “The Auld Triangle” in Electric Acorn 15.

    Congratulations on “In Sight Of Home” — I believe you read from it that night in Dublin?

    Let’s keep in touch.

    All best,

    Ethel Rohan (nee McDonnell)
    San Francisco

  2. Hi Ethel

    Great to hear from you … yes indeed, I remember that well. Hope all is good in the Bay Area.

    Take care
