Old City New Rumours—a Hull  anthology  

Old City New Rumours (Five Leaves Publications, 2010)

Title

Price: £7.99

Old City: New Rumours is an anthology of work by poets who have lived or worked in Hull, a city described by Philip Larkin as having ‘a different resonance.’ The collection is a sequel to the influential 1982 collection A Newly Rumoured City (Ed. Douglas Dunn, with a foreword by Philip Larkin). New work by all the poets featured in that 1982 collection are included as are other poets including Andrew Motion, Grace Nichols, David Wheatley and Douglas Dunn himself.

Philip Larkin died 25 years ago and commemorations were held in Hull during the summer of 2010. This exciting publication celebrates Larkin 25, but it will be read long afterwards.

With contributions from: Sean O’Brien, Andrew Motion, Tom Paulin, Roger McGough...
