We are delighted to announce the book launch of Nessa O'Mahony and Marc Vincenz.

Nessa O’Mahony’s The Hollow Woman and the Island is her fifth poetry collection; her third with Salmon Poetry. Earlier work includes In Sight of Home (2009), Her Father’s Daughter (2014) Trapping a Ghost (2005) and Bar Talk, (1999). Her first book of historic crime fiction, The Branchman, was published by Arlen House in 2018.

She is co-editor with Siobhan Campbell of Eavan Boland: Inside History (Arlen House 2016) and co-edited Metamorphic: 21st Century Poets Respond to Ovid (Recent Work Press 2017) with Paul Munden and a special Irish Issue of The North Magazine with Jane Clarke in 2018. She edited The Stony Thursday Book in 2018. She presents The Attic Sessions, a literary podcast, which she produces with her husband, Peter Salisbury. She is an Associate Lecturer with the Open University.

Marc Vincenz’s Here Comes the Nightdust is his fifteenth collection of poetry. His novella set in ancient China, Three Taos of T’ao, or How to Catch a White Elephant is to be released by Spuyten Duyvil in 2019. He has also been widely published elsewhere, including in The Nation, Ploughshares, The Common, Solstice, Raritan, Notre Dame Review, World Literature Today, Los Angeles Review of Books, New World Writing and more.

Vincenz, who was born in Hong Kong and holds dual British and Swiss nationalities, is also a multi-lingual translator of many contemporary German, French and Romanian authors. His latest work of translation, Unexpected Development (White Pine Press, 2018), by prize-winning Swiss novelist, poet and playwright Klaus Merz, was a finalist for the 2016 Cliff Becker Book Prize in Translation. Vincenz has received fellowships and grants from the Swiss Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Witter Bynner Foundation for Poetry and the Literary Colloquium Berlin. He lives in Massachusetts.
