Edinburgh International Book Festival: Jenni Fagan & Iona Lee – Calling to Mind

Saturday 17th August, 16:00 – 17:00

EFI Courtyard Theatre


Anamnesis is Greek for ‘recollection of the past’. It’s also the title of Iona Lee’s latest poetry collection which prompted Darren McGarvey to write, ‘Lee performs open-heart surgery on the English language’. Similar could be said for Jenni Fagan’s A Swan’s Neck on a Butcher Block – poems of startling honesty that return to and reimagine night-time to magical effect. The poets discuss dipping into the realm of memory with Samuel Tongue.
