Poetry - Rita Ann Higgins (Audio Book)

By Rita Ann Higgins

Reference: CICL24  

There are not many books of poems of which I can say that I remember the day, the month, the year when I read them. Rita Ann Higgins’ Goddess on the Mervue Bus was such a book. It was a cold dark winter’s day when I read it and it lit a fire in my heart. To me Rita Ann Higgins means a unique line in human warmth; a unique colour of humour and a unique clarity.
- Paul Durcan

Strength, clarity, honesty, anger and wit are just some of the words used to try and convey the essence of the voice of Rita Ann Higgins – none of which fully express her bluntly honest insight into contemporary Irish society.
