"2016 – The Selected Satires of Kevin Higgins" is a timely collection of 16 topical satirical poems plus Kevin’s re-write of the 1916 Proclamation. Everyone is in here: Lucinda Creighton (or Lucy as Kevin calls her), Denis O’Brien, Angela Merkel, Enda Kenny, Michael D. Higgins, Joan Burton (God rest her), Tony Blair, Hillary Clinton...Fox News, Irish Water, her Holiness Cora Sherlock of the Pro-life Campaign, and the monument to high liberal seriousness that is his excellency Sir Fergus Finlay all also get dishonourable mention. If some people had their way, this book would be banned. Be sure and buy as many copies as possible before it is.

About the Author:

Kevin Higgins is co-organiser of Over The Edge literary events in Galway. He has published four collections of poems: "The Boy With No Face" (2005), "Time Gentlemen, Please" (2008), "Frightening New Furniture"(2010), and "The Ghost In The Lobby" (2014). His poems also feature in "Identity Parade – New British and Irish Poets" (Bloodaxe, 2010) and in "The Hundred Years’ War: modern war poems" (Ed Neil Astley, Bloodaxe, May 2014). His poetry was the subject of a paper titled ‘The Case of Kevin Higgins: Or The Present State of Irish Poetic Satire’ given by David Wheatley at a symposium on satire at the University of Aberdeen in May 2014. "Mentioning The War", a collection of his essays and reviews, was published by Salmon in April, 2012. Kevin’s blog is Mentioning the War (http://mentioningthewar.blogspot.ie/) and has been described by Dave Lordan as “one of the funniest around” who has also called Kevin “Ireland’s sharpest satirist.” Kevin is satirist-in-residence with the alternative literature website The Bogman’s Cannon (http://bogmanscannon.com/). "Song of Songs 2:0 – New & Selected Poems" will be published by Salmon in Spring 2017.
