Paisley Central Library, 15 Mill Street, Paisley PA1 1ND

Free event

You are invited to the book launch of, Portrait, the first full-length poetry collection by Paisley writer, Tracy Patrick, author of the Saltire-commended novel, Blushing is for Sinners. Tracy will be accompanied by one of the best writers of modern poetry in Scotland, the widely-published and acclaimed Paisley poet, Graham Fulton.

Portrait is a collection of searingly honest poems written after the author’s diagnosis with cardiomyopathy at aged 42. The result is funny, challenging and inventive, a reckoning with mortality that captures the fear of dying, vicissitudes of change, and the sheer the joy of being alive.

‘An authentic rendering of what tested living feels like.’ Donny O’Rourke (Broadcaster and Poet).
