"Jen Campbell’s The Hungry Ghost Festival is a magical debut. Her charged poems of a northern childhood… are fresh and compelling - told with a canny eye for detail and a gorgeous turn of phrase. This is an arresting collection from a writer fully in command of an unusual and significant voice." - Anna Woodford [author of Birdhouse, winner of The Crawshaw Prize]
The Hungry Ghost Festival is published by The Rialto. Cover illustration is by Laura Barnard.
Sunday evening reading. What are you all reading at the moment? Any recommendations?
Little girl: I love books. I’ve written a book.
Me: Have you? What’s it about?
Little girl: I don’t know. It’s in my head. I haven’t read it yet.
TOMORROW: Saturday 29th June, I’m going to be hanging out and signing books at The Book Barge in Lichfield. Yes, that’s right: it’s a bookshop on a boat! I’ll be there 2pm-4pm with Sarah, who owns the Book Barge (and whose book ‘The Bookshop That Floated Away’ is out later this year). Come and say hello! It’s a beautiful shop and you can find the boat at Barton Marina, Barton under Needwood, Staffordshire, DE13 8DZ.
