Emily Cullen, "In Between Angels and Animals", Melbourne launch

Dr. Frances Devlin-Glass, Hon. Associate Professor at Deakin University, founder of Bloomsday in Melbourne and a noted scholar of Irish & Irish-Australian literature, launches Emily Cullen's collection of poetry, "In Between Angels and Animals", on Thursday 7 November at the Rooftop Garden, Daniel Mannix Building, Australian Catholic University.

The book addresses various states of in-betweenness as the poet transitions through life, from single woman through to wife and mother. Echoing its title, there is a sense of the animal and the divine as some of the poems grapple with the corporeality of pregnancy and motherhood, and the illumination that maternal love brings. Wit flows through the volume, infusing humour amid the poet’s reflections on her new circumstances.

The book is for sale, as are all Arlen House titles, from Kenny's Bookshop, Galway., with free postage worldwide.

    One of the biggest challenges when you decide to move is to select the right apartment. How could you anticipate future needs right now?
