Beverley F. Wright
Songs from the Heart & Elsewhere
Books are selling very well - stocked at Blackwell's and also available via Waterstone's - and Songs launch events have received some fantastic reviews:
Edinburgh Theatre Review
". . . the poems as presented by the cast were entertaining. There are funny moments and moments of slightly unexpected emotional power . . ."
Lothian Life Magazine
". . . the collection of down to earth poems has been staged to maximise the narrative content of Wright's writing, bringing out much of the comedy behind them and accentuating their humanity."
Fiona McDonald (Resident Writer, Tightlaced Theatre)
"Beautiful unpretentious poetry."
"Ms Wright's debut work . . . shows a distinctly feminine voice and wry humour . . . The poems offer great variety, which both engaged and entertained the live audience. The selection performed included a few poems using the Scots language, a medium in which Wright shows herself to be equally effective."
"Many of the poems bring out the humour in everyday situations . . . However Wright does not shy away from more serious issues with particular highlights of the evening including Annie's Bunnet . . . and The Coat, both touching tales of the power attached to seemingly ordinary objects and the memories they can evoke."
Songs From the Heart & Elsewhere can also be ordered via e-mail and retails at £8.99.
